Skill Developing Activities

The Magnettis, the multy-layer magnetic game, is an innovative, first-of-its-kind game which enhances a child’s knowledge and develops his/her emotional, learning and motor skills while having fun playing.

Educational Benefits

Guide your child to assemble pictures using the examples appearing in the manual or his/her own imagination while telling the story “hidden” in the pictures. It’s a great opportunity to convey values such as: friendship, inclusion, responsibility, dialogue, mutual respect, family values and more.

Language & Literary Enrichment

Naming: Pick up different pieces and ask: What is this called?

Comparison: iPick up two different pieces and ask: What is similar? What is different?

Opposites: Boy-girl, open-closed, tall-short., open-closed, tall-short.

Relationships: Who sleeps in this bed? Whose stroller is it? Whose baby is that?

Sorting: Arrange groups of objects, such as people, furniture, eating utensils. Ask: Are these hard? Can we eat these? Are they made of wood?

Describing functions: What do we do with a chair? When do we use an air conditioner? What does the lamp do?

Verbal perception: Which pieces begin with the letter A? Which end with the letter M? Which object names rhyme?

Thinking & Memory Skills

Arrange a number of pieces in certain order and show them to your child. Then mix the pieces and ask your child to return them to their original order.
Show your child a picture made of several pieces. Ask him/her to close his/her eyes and remove one or more pieces. Ask which piece is missing.

Creativity & Imagination

Ask: What is Grandpa telling the children? Whose birthday party is it? What is the cat telling the dog? What is the ball asking the boy? Mention situations that require a solution. Who will sit next to the baby? Where should we place the flowers? How can the children help Grandma?

Emotional Expression

Ask: What do the children feel when they play together? How does Father feel when he comes home? How will the knapsack feel if the girl forgot to put it in its place?

Mathematical thinking

One-to-one correspondence:
Encourage your child to set the table while counting the number of chairs, plates and cups, or to organize the girls' bedroom while counting the number of beds and girls.

Counting: Of which pieces are there only one? (Father, Grandma) Of which pieces are there two?
(Shoes) How many chairs are there? How many books in the closet?

Find the pairs: Father-Mother, Grandpa-Grandma, brother-sister, baby boy-baby girl.

Motor Skills

Encourage your child to place the game pieces all over the board including on top of each other in countless variations. Creating a real-life picture requires utilizing motor skills and coordination. Sticking the game pieces to any magnetic surface in the house like a refrigerator door and moving them around activates the hand and shoulder muscles and develops fine and gross motor skills.

Spatial Orientation

Ask: Where should we hang the picture? Who is sitting on the couch? What is inside the closet? What should we put on the table?
Ask: What is to the right of the bed? What is to the left of the chest? What is behind it? What is under it? What is above it?
