I previously shared how I made my own textured pizza box puzzles and during that same DIY game making spree, I also created these super fun craft stick magnets for our large magnetic board…

I purchased colored craft sticks for this process but you could certainly paint your own set of craft sticks. On both ends of each craft stick, I hot glued a magnet…

I also hot glued some of the craft sticks together to make shapes and added the magnets on the shapes…

Today was the first day I set out the craft stick magnets and the children explored the craft stick magnets on our large magnetic board…

Immediately, I could hear the children naming the shapes of the different magnets and deciding how they could make their own shapes…

This is easily an open ended DIY activity as we will be able to use the magnetic craft sticks to explore patterns, shapes, counting, colors, and more…

Super fun and super easy to make…

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
