Harvest Magnet Scene

My twins are LOVING magnets lately, so I decided to create a harvest-themed magnet activity for them. They played with this for over 30 minutes, which in toddler time is about a million years.

What You Will Need:

How To:

  • Measure parchment paper and cut it to fit whatever surface you are using.
  • Draw harvest scene on parchment paper then FLIP OVER so that the marker doesn’t run when touched. I drew cobwebs and a pumpkin patch so we could work on sorting.
    *If you kiddos are older, have them draw their own scene!
  • Cut foam shapes to fit your scene. I used various sizes to work on matching and comparison.
  • Add magnets to back of foam shapes.
    *CAUTION: DO NOT LEAVE TODDLERS WITH MAGNET FOAM SHAPES UNATTENDED.
  • Play!

We had so much fun! We sang “Itsy Bitsy Spider,” counted pumpkins, matched by size, and just watched them smile A LOT.
