Engineering – Building Shapes

For our August STEM project from Amazon, we received Magna-Qubix 29-Piece Set. This toy is “the Original, Award-Winning Magnetic 3D Building Shapes.”

My 5 year old loved it’s creativity aspect and I love it’s educational aspect. Learning the difference between a pyramid and triangle. Or cube and square. The 3D shapes really help my kids understand the difference between 2D and 3D.

My 1 year old was ready to take them apart to get the small magnetic balls inside them. She was unsuccessful thanks to the quality of this toy. Yeah!! She got bored of them or maybe sister wasn’t sharing very well. Either way she moved on.

Needless to say, my oldest was excited she got to use them all to make this magnificent castle. At least I think it is a castle. Maybe robot?!? Either way she was exercising her creativity making me happy!

Sometimes my kids need a jumpstart on their creativity.

What can you do with this toy?

So I made some exercise for you and your kiddos to do to get the juices flowing. Enjoy!

Here are some other puzzles to assemble:
