Science Sunday: My First Magnet Kit

I got this a few years ago when I had a coupon to a children’s museum.  It’s a neat little kit, and it’s been sitting in my closet waiting for the best time for it.

Well that time came when I needed magnets for digging up the Hunley.

And the kids loved it, and played with it for an hour afterwards.  I did have to split up the set into 3 sets and rotate the kids around the different ones to cut down on arguments.  It was insane on that matter, but otherwise a well spent hour.

This time was mostly free form experimentation, what could I do with them, what couldn’t I do type of thing.  Eventually we’ll actually get to the experiments in the book.  But, for then it was a great type of playing around.

So, I wrote this post a few months ago, and now I’m finally getting to post it.  I’m feeling kinda lazy and rather tired after this past week.  It’s amazing how much you take for granted comfortable beds and the ability to send your kids to their room or outside for a few minutes of quiet.  I’m looking forward to getting home and sleeping in my own bed.

  1. It's great when you find a kit that is really good. Magnets are so fun. My kids are starting to get to the squabbling age too…making me insane too! Then they do something super sweet for their sibling and it melts my heart.
