Matching Magnetic Fruits and Vegetables

I found these vegetable and fruit magnets at the dollar store this afternoon. I bought 3 packs so O could sort & match them, and she seemed to enjoy this work. She was easily distracted, and I think I put out too many items at one time. I put one of each item on the cookie sheet, and I put the matching pairs in the basket. She was supposed to pick up one item at a time and match it to its pair on the cookie sheet. We'll try this again tomorrow with fewer items :)


  1. This is a great idea for matching! Easy for little hands to manipulate, too.

  2. Oh, wow! My grandmother had a set of magnets just like these in the 70s -- look like the same molds -- and she passed the remaining (unbroken) ones down to me! They're currently on my fridge! How neat they still make them.
