Favorite Friday: Learning Through Play

Happy Friday! We are so excited to be sharing our favorite books, curriculum, resources, and supplies that we use to homeschool! Each Friday, we will be sharing products we love to use in our own homeschooling adventure. Enjoy these homeschooling items that we can’t live without….and you shouldn’t either!

This Friday we wanted to share a STEM set that keeps kids busy and having fun so that we can work one-on-one with other children. Even better is that there is no screen involved!

Magformers are an amazing educational construction set. They are so much more than just a toy! These colorful magnetic tiles encourage kids to use their imaginations to build all sorts of creations. An idea booklet is included if they need a little help, but all you will have to do is open the box and let your kids “click, connect, and create.” Magformers are a wonderful example of a STEM toy. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, which means this toy strengthens and expands these concepts as a child utilizes them. They are also a great way to promote motor skills for children. Perfect for ages three and up.

My children received their first Magformers set when they were around 5. (And those kids are now in college!) All of my children have loved playing with them. Currently, my three younger children spend hours a day making different creations with them. It’s fun to see how they use their imagination to build new things, plus, they do not even realize they are learning! I can also attest that we have had excellent customer service with this company over the years. They produce a well-made product and will stand behind it if there is an issue. We have continued to add to our original set over the years as they make a variety of sets. We now have a huge fabric bin we keep them all in! (Check out our post from last week on organization.)

We hope that your kids will find these Magformers as fun as ours have. You will want to be sure to check out our other Favorite Friday picks!
