Create, Explore and Play with Magnets

Today, I explored magnets.

I know magnets stick to certain metals only.  I was curious if we have the kind of metals they stick to.  I discovered we did.

Magnets stuck to certain parts of the covers of our pans and all over the place on our bowls.

When I was playing with the magnets, I discovered that they could stick to each other through plastic.  So, I could stick them together to make a cool game.  

I tried to toss little metal balls into cups and if they hit the magnet I was pretty happy.

Then, I started to build structures like this one:

 I named this structure The Cool Ball Sticks.

This is another structure I made.  

Oh, by the way, I can create a lot of things with magnets!  Now, let me get back to what I was talking about.

That cool structure that I made in the bowl is called The Hut.  Two balls are people in the hut.

This is me surrounded by my cool structures.  Magnet structures, remember?

This is me building another structure, attaching two bowls together.  The structure is like there are two buildings right beside each other connected by a little bridge.

I also made a small little building inside a bowl.

Can you create magnet structures?  I'd like to see pictures!
