My kids first encountered Magnatiles at our favorite hands-on engineering museum! The were in a dark room, sitting on a light table and my kids were immediately memorized! I knew that I would have to get my hands on a light table and some Magnatiles, as soon as possible, because my kids spent a whole hour playing with nothing but those tiles!
Luckily, I happened to have a friend, who is also an amazing tattoo artist, that had an extra light table and she gave it to us! If you are not so lucky, you can find a light table here or make your own!
Well, Magnatile was gracious enough to send my kids a box of tiles to get creative with and boy, did they ever. They play with them all the time. Both my 9 yr old and my almost 4 yr old are simply in love with their Magnatiles and I’ll be honest, I love to play with them too!
Here are a couple of things that we made:
My daughter, who isn’t quite 4, put this together on her own. She was so proud!
We have just scratched the surface of all of the cool things that we can do with Magnatiles! Check out the awesome stuff that other people have done!
Magnatiles start off at $51.50 for the smallest set, but believe me, they are totally worth it. They are durable, fun, and educational. We use them everyday for play and we use them as part of our homeschooling!
You can learn more about Magnatiles and where to get them by checking out their website, liking them on Facebook or tweeting them on Twitter! You can also find more cool Magnatile creations on Pinterest!
