10 Fun Magnets Preschool Unit Activities

This post may contain affiliate links.

Young children love to play with magnets and see how they work. In my preschool homeschool curriculum, I have included a fun magnet themed unit to explore magnets.

Remember to always supervise your child with magnets, and never give them small pieces while alone.

I personally like to let my children use magnet wands which are easy to hold and a safe alternative than smaller magnets.

Here are 10 fun Preschool Magnet theme activities for your preschool unit:

1. Magnet Powered Car (Science Kiddo)

2. Mining for Magnets (No Time for Flashcards)

3. Magnets and Pipe Cleaners (Frugal Fun 4 Boys and Girls)

4. Painting with Magnets (Housing a Forest)

5. Magnetic Eggs (Modern Preschool)


6. Magnet Discovery Bottles (Preschool Inspirations)

8. Magnets & Gravity Experiment (Rookie Parenting)
