Just like the letters on the frig that encourage them to play and learn, these fairy tale ‘story starter’ magnets do the same for creating stories and narrative.
Well before they learn to write, kids begin to learn the sequencing of stories and about beginning, middle and end. An open ended prompt like these homemade magnets encourage the development of this important skill.
Your child a bit under foot in the kitchen? Have him or her go the frig and use the magnets to make up a story to tell you. Everybody wins.
