The Magnet Wall is a large surface (4’ x 6’ or 8’) which is made for drawing with real (or fake) chalk!

These are another must on a playground. 33% of children are visual learners, and children who make art read better and get better grades, so art should be an important activity outside as well, because the outdoor environment stimulates all kinds of sensations that children can’t get inside.

These are also great for an outdoor classroom, and can easily be installed in front of sitting stumps or slab or other benches spaced 6 safe feet apart.

It’s well-known that art develops hand and eye coordination, stimulates perception, allows exploration of ideas, encourages creative solutions, enhances critical thinking, provides a way to reflect on feelings, and allows children to be more self-aware and to express thoughts or emotions in new ways, so this Chalk Wall can play a critical role in your outdoor curriculum.

Chalk Panels are completely washable, which makes cleanup simple.

Made for mounting to a wall or fence, but it can also be freestanding if you order the posts, and it comes with complete, easy installation instructions and all hardware.

Magnetic Loose Parts Packages: What would a magnet board be without the magnetic learning elements that stick to it? We have two size packages.

The Small Magnetic Loose Parts Package contains 3 24” wood chutes, 4 12” wood chutes, 4 deflectors, 4 funnel rings (all with strong magnets that attach to the board), and 4 funnels.

The Large Magnetic Loose Parts Package contains 4 36” wood chutes, 6 24”, 4 12” wood chutes, 4 deflectors, 6 funnel rings (all with strong magnets that attach to the board), and 5 funnels.
