Magnet Painting!


We attend a Science class once a week, and last week we learnt about magnets!
Butterfly did a really cool craft activity with a magnet that I just had to post it!

The materials needed: A paper plate with paint squirted on, a metal paper clip, and a magnet!



With the magnet stick under the paper plate, move the paper clip through the paint!




















Such a fun idea! Combine painting with learning about magnetic attraction!
