Preschool Art Activities ~ Magnet Painting

My kiddos are fascinated with magnets.  They had so much fun playing with magnets in our Pixy Stix tray , so I knew they would love painting with them.  They had a blast making trails in the paint.  This is quickly becoming one of our favorite preschool art activities.  I love that it blends art and science by using magnets, paint and found objects.
