Exploring Magnetism using the Learn & Grow Magnetic Wand 

Magnet play is one of the first simple science activities that kids can experience since magnets are easy to use, commonly found around the home and more importantly, lots of fun. Learners of all ages enjoy experimenting with magnets. This, combined with the many hands-on activities that magnet play provides, makes it a great learning opportunity. Magnet play can help develop and nurture skills in all four STEM areas.

Exploring Gravity with Marble Runs 

Marble runs - they're a classic activity that can involve and engage the whole family. They are a fascinating form of play, which allow open-ended building with open-ended toys, while fostering creativity, imagination and learning.

Exploring Shadows 

Shadow play involves activities and experiments that can help our children learn what a shadow is and how shadows are formed through a hands-on experience. Many children are afraid and/or fascinated by their own shadow from a very young age, so why not help them understand what a shadow is and how fun and magical shadows can be! Through playing with light and shadow, our little learners are exploring a whole range of learning benefits. Light and darkness (or shadows) holds great fascination for little learners, as they're able to manipulate the light and shadows to create images and stories.

We hope this blog post inspired you to try some of these fun activity ideas this International STEM Day. Don't forget to check out our wonderful range of Educational toys and resources at Oskar's Wooden Ark, and make every day a day for learning through PLAY!
