Making a Snake with Magnetic Rocks

I found these magnetic rocks at a gift shop and was impressed by how strong the force was when making this snake. I used them yesterday with a girl who stood on top of the horse. My sidewalker and I stabilized her at the ankles and she was so busy playing with the magnets that she forgot to be scared.

Another child was motivated to use both hands together and reach as I handed him rocks to add to the snake.
