Magnetic Wooden Animals are a great set of 20 mixed animal magnets that are ready to be stuck to the fridge, dishwasher or magnet board. The set includes animals such as an elephant, panda, dog, snail, dolphin and many more. They come fabulously packaged in their own wooden box for easy storage.
Extend Play and Learning
- Stick all of the magnets to the fridge and start telling stories with the animals. Show your child how this is done and then let them have a turn. If they are struggling prompt them by giving them a line to build on. Such as “Once upon a time there was a dog who was…”. They may be able to keep going from here but if not, keep prompting them and let them add bits and pieces to the story as you go. Bring more and more animals into the storyline. This will enhance language and literacy skills in a fun and interesting way.
- Group all of the animals into categories such as insects, pets, wild animals, farm animals, etc. This will encourage the pre math skills of grouping and categorisation.
