Make Your Own Magnetic Tangrams

During our "row" of The Rag Coat, by Lauren Mills, the manuals math lesson was on geometric shapes and suggested creating shapes on a Geoboard and/or playing with tangrams. With my stash of paint chips, I created our own magnetic tangram set.
It was an easy project to throw together and would make a great busy bag and/ or road trip activity.

DIY Magnetic Tangrams for Kids

Supplies I used:

I used paint chips for my tangram pieces, but you could easily use laminated construction paper or card stock  that way the pieces hold up longer.

I printed a tangram outline from, cut out the individual pieces, traced onto the card stock, then cut the pieces out of paint chips.  Then attatch magnetic tape to each piece.

Play on a cookie sheet or the fridge!
I found printable Tangram worksheets from ABCTeach.  There are a couple puzzles that are free; I am sure you could do a google search for more, though!

Have fun!
I'd love for you to follow along so you never miss out on one of our fun activities we share at School Time Snippets!
