We’re in week two of our self isolation during the Covid-19 Pandemic and with three boys, Gav and I in our little house, we could not have been more grateful when a big box of Geomag Confetti was left on our doorstep, with a message that we have a set to give away too!
We’ve had Geomag sets before, but this one is out favourite – the Geomag Confetti set contains 61 spheres [or ball bearings to you and I], 60 light blue, orange, red and green rods, four blue square platforms and two purple pentagonal platforms to build with.
LEARNING THROUGH STEM PLAY
The way Geomag works is simple – there are magnetic rods and metal spheres which you can join together to create structures and shapes.
Inside the pack is a helpful sheet with instructions on how to build different Geomag Confetti structures from simple to complex – this morning we built a bridge together! It felt quite sturdy after a bit of teamwork to get it lifted and in position, but things get a bit hairy sometimes when we’re trying to move a structure around.
So why would you want to win a set of Geomag? Well, if you’re at home right now as the Prime Minister requested, and trying to stay safe whilst also attempting to work AND trying to in some manner get a little bit of education into your children, this is your chance. With Geomag, whilst your children play, they’re STEM learning at the same time. Win-win! Also, despite the enormous box it stores in a very small space and you can add to your collection to build immense constructions. It’s the perfect rainy day toy. We have a few sets and they never get bored of them.
If you’d like to win a set, here’s how – there’s a post on Facebook where you can also tag a friend if you’d like!
