 Half term here in the UK is seriously wet and windy. The house is full of lurgies, which calls for rainy-day play. My girls love crafts and making things. Today's challenge was den-making.We've already done the whole kitchen table and chairs den, but Nila wanted to make some of her toys a den and I love me a challenge - challenge accepted!.

We were kindly sent the GEOMAG glitter set, winning already with how pretty the pieces are in this one. 


3 storage boxes

Instruction booklet with some really cool ideas and designs

Inside the box, you get 60 pieces of magnetic glitter rods and balls.

The storage boxes are great, no losing the balls, and the kids can put everything away on their own for the next play session.

We had such a blast with this. I Remember GEOMAG when I was younger but i cant remember it being this much fun :). We made different shapes and tried to beat each other by building the biggest towers and then knocking them over.

Of course, the task was to den make and I think we did a great job!. Mickey and his friends had a pretty cool den if you ask me, and we also made a den over Nila; 's train track.

Play with GEOMAG is honestly endless. They are great for getting kids to use their imagination and creativity, Learning through play is something I am a big advocate for and these are 10/10.

Supporting STEM play they are also a great way to introduce talks on recycling and caring for the plant which Nila is really interested in and it’s a child-friendly way of starting the topic off.

These STEAM sets are great at helping children of all ages develop through the science of magnetic construction and Nila has already asked for some more sets for Christmas. This is a great Christmas gift idea, really affordable too!.

The magnets are safe for kids, not suitable for children under 3 because of the small magnet balls which are a choking risk.

If you want to pick up a set of your own then the GEOMAG glitter set can be purchased from Amazon.
