2D magnetic tile creations - play ideas
Magnetic tiles are a great toy and resource for children of all ages. Below we have listed a few 2D play ideas you can do with your kids at home or at school.
1. Bookish Story Play
Grab their favourite book and re-create their favourite characters with magnetic tile shapes, like Elmer the Elephant and Kevin the Koala.
You can find more bookish play templates here - templates include Hungry Caterpillar, Paddington Bear + many more
Cars, boats, farm croppers, trucks, buses..
Our favourite is this farm crop tractor, created by one of our creative customers.
Dream house, story book castles, tall towers. 2D play does not limit creativity.
Creating mandalas promotes well-being at all ages. For children is an activity that helps develop hand-eye coordination, trains the mind to recognise shapes, develops creativity, stimulates the sense of patience and attention.
Birds, bugs, mammals, reptiles and more
Our favourite animal 2D creations include this pink flamingo and caterpillar
Tangrams help children develop spatial visualisation skills and introduce or reinforce geometric concepts.
