Fun with Science Magnetism Experiments for Kids

Updated on November 11, 2014

Magnets, Magnetism, Experiments for Kids

I spent many an hour as a young child experimenting with magnets. They somehow had a magical fascination for me, how else could they move things without touching. Yet there is a surprising amount of science to be learnt from experimenting with magnetism.

This lense Fun with Science - Magnetism Experiments for Kids is a collection of simple, safe, but FUN experiments that children can enjoy and learn from.

Get ready to explore magnetism right at home with the ScienceWiz Magnetism kit. This great kit includes two stages of experiments:

The large, color coded magnets should be played with first in Kindergarten. Try out the first 15 activities to explore which metals stick to magnets, magnetic poles, attract and repel, magnets through materials, and temporary magnets. Your child will draw with iron filings, discover what sticks to magnets, levitate and bounce rings, swim a duck, make a temporary magnet, detect iron, go fishing, and play with magnetic poles.

      As a kid I had a collection of magnetics and had such fun with them and your blog has reminded me of those times! Magnetism is such a fascinating invisible force that of course kids love it.
