Have a Magnet Marathon!
Magnets are simple yet can be so endlessly fascinating. For little kids, there’s a kind of magic in the way poles attract and repel, and for adult scientists, of course, magnetic forces drive some of the most important technology of the 21st century. You can explore the "magic" and power behind magnets with your kindergartener by setting up your own magnet races. Get ready to hold a magnet marathon!
