Playing with magnets is a lot of fun. I distinctly as a child remember playing with them on tables and chairs trying to move a metal objects with using the magnets.

In Jingle Bell Tubes we explored the power of magnets to move jingle bells up through a cardboard tube. It was very simple to set up and take down but really fun for my almost four year old. This activity would be ideal for toddlers or preschoolers but even school aged children would enjoy this!

Simple Set Up for Jingle Bell Magnetic Tubes

Grab a few cardboard tubes of different sizes and tape them upright to the bottom of a sensory bin.

You do not need to do this activity in a sensory bin. It could be done quite easily on a hard floor.

I, however, found that the bin helped to contain the bells.

Once the tubes were taped down I let my daughter drop a few jingle bells down the tubes.

Then using the wand she slowly tried to lift up the dropped objects by putting the wand along the outside of the tube and slowly lifting it upwards.

Once the dropped bells reached the top she would grab them with her hands.

This activity was a total hit. My imaginative four year old loved pulling up the bells and seeing how many could fit onto the magnetic wands!
