SORT & COUNT: Have kids sort the magnets into different groups - animals, people, shoes, etc. How many different groups or categories can kids create? Have them count the pieces in one group, then two, then three, and so on.
PATTERN POWER: Help kids identify magnets that are the same shapes - for instance, circles (wheels, ball, sun), squares (bodies), rectangles (legs, buildings, sign poles). On the game board, create a shape pattern with five magnets, and have kids repeat the pattern with other magnets below it.
TRACE & PLACE: Trace some of the magnets on a piece of paper and have kids color in the shapes. Then, have kids find magnets that match the traced shapes.
