My daughter is almost 9 years old.
Past the age to fancy Barbies & has grown beyond the girlie fascination of colour ‘Pink’.
Her interests are steering more towards scientific experiments & analytical thinking.
When WonderBoxx, the monthly learning solution for children sent across their August subscription box – ‘Magic Magnetism’ to be reviewed on the blog, she was exhilarated!
Wonderboxx is a unique concept of ‘Learn While You Play’. It is a theme-based monthly subscription box service. They design, develop and send age-specific, hands-on learning material appropriate for children of all age groups.
The toys in WonderBoxx are conceptualised in such a way that they entice curiosity, encourage exploration, develop creativity and strengthen the child’s cognitive and motor skills.
…and of course keep them engaged in a constructive manner beyond online games.
So, here is what Aleena, my 9 year old found in her August WonderBoxx.
- DIY Magnetic Thaumatrope
A fascinating experiment to understand magnetic attraction and the magical illusion of a thaumatrope (remember that toy you made in childhood, a disk with a picture on each side, attached to two pieces of string? It’s the same thing).
- The Disco Animals Experiment
This one helps in learning and distinguishing the properties of magnets (attraction and repulsion) by building a practical base for learning.
- MagleAv Car Experiment
This experiment teaches advanced magnetism concepts (like magnetic levitation) and provides deeper understanding of a magnet’s properties.
- Fan, Spoke and Shapes Experiment
Another good one to help the child assemble an experiment to further understand & observe the complex properties of a magnet.
- Hopping Animals Experiment
This was fun! Origami with Magnetism – what a combination.
- Visual Encyclopedia
This is a compilation of interesting facts, anecdotes and wonderful visuals for conceptual understanding.
- Parent Feed
This was Easy ideas and expert articles that help and inspire you in your journey as a parent.
