I still need to find the right plastic containers for our magnetic discovery jars. Ones without bumps and ridges. Just straight, smooth, tall walls AND easy to peel off labels. Do you have a trick to get those annoying sticky labels off containers? If you do, I’d love to hear from you! Goodness knows how many containers I could re-use if only I could get those sticky labels off.

In the meantime, I made some temporary magnetic discovery jars using small cute glass jars. I say temporary because I don’t trust my kids around glass objects yet. For their magnetic wands, I hot-glued a magnet onto a craft stick. For fillers we used the following:

fuzzy pipe cleaners


colourful paperclips

The hunt for more permanent containers continues…
