How to Inspire Learning

Teaching your children or students about shapes and colors has never been easier thanks to Magna-Tiles® line of colorful and interactive products. Kids love the technical, hands-on nature of our offerings, and educators everywhere benefit from an increased level of student engagement and participation.


There are countless ways for you to use Magna-Tiles® to teach your child the basic shapes and colors. For younger children, we recommend starting slow and getting them familiarized with the basics by learning about shapes with Magna-Tiles®. In this exercise, the instructor holds up different Magna-Tiles® and asks the class to identify each shape. When you complete the exercise, students will be able to identify triangles, squares, and rectangles.


More advanced students can learn about 3D shapes with Magna-Qubix®. In this exercise, students learn how to count and identify the sides, edges, and vertices of different 3D shapes and objects. Students also compare 2D and 3D shapes in different forms and orientations.
