Magnet dolls and numbers

101_5495 For a while the magnet dolls were played with quite a bit, but after a while I decided to move them to an area more accessible to all .  I discovered that the wooden box the dolls came in was far more interesting than the actual dolls at first.  The challenge of taking the wooden box down from the top of the shelves was more appealing than playing with them.  Once the dolls were down play would start, yet when I moved them the interest faded.

 

101_5497 So to recapture some interest I mixed some magnetic numbers in with the clothing items of the dolls.  Sometimes simply changing how something is displayed can draw interest again.  And there are times when young minds need a little assistance with ideas to get started with.

If you’ve witnessed any fading of interest in your classes or homes, please share some experiences! 🙂
