Unless you're blessed with a SMEG fridge (and if you are, I'm incredibly jealous) you've probably got a big white space in your kitchen begging to be decorated. Our fridge at home has assorted takeaway menus, important letters and various scribbles pinned to the surface with the kind of novelty magnets you get in junk mail.
Families needn't waste that space though. Kids love the concept of magnets, and there are several types of educational magnet sets that will improve their knowledge whilst keeping them busy. Magnetic products aren't restricted to finding a spare bit of room on your white goods either.
This 'My Calender' from Great Little Trading Co. is £36. It comes with a bunch of day, month and year magnets, along with weather options too, so you can hang it up and let the kids organise your week.
