Baby Activity – Magnets and a Muffin Tin

This is such a neat idea from Baby Brainstorm! Your baby can experiment with things that are magnetic, work with one to one correspondence, and practice putting in and taking out all with one activity. Simply put a magnet in each spot and let your baby play.

An older sibling might have fun with this too. They can put the magnets in rows by color for baby or put pairs in the tin and practice matching. You could put the letters in and challenge your older child to find the letters of their name.  Can they find the vowels? So many possibilities with such a simple activity!

I saw this idea on Pinterest and included it on my 18 Ways to Create Learning Experiences with Children Using Muffin Tins post. Thanks for the great idea!

This is a great idea. My littlest one is always trying to swipe the magnets of the easel while his brother is playing. Giving the baby his own magnets to work out of the muffin tins should bring some peace to my house... maybe temporary peace!

What a cute idea! Sweet T will be ready for this before I know it. She's getting more and more difficult to keep entertained and she's only 15 weeks!
