Magnets are usually a favorite of all the boy students in my class at the junior most classes. The day of introduction of a magnet to them when I narrate and show them all the properties of a magnet is the one which they remember year after year. The experience does not vary much with every batch and I see the boys carrying around magnet and checking its properties most practically in the playground or else where ay home once they have learned how it works. I observed the fascination and somehow I registered it in my mind at some level.
All this observation stored in the form of memory came back to me when I was designing my toddler boy’s room. I could envisage him having a great time with magnets once he grew up a bit. This seemed like a perfect time to plan for a gift in future. I decided to use magnetic paint in his room so that he could grown up and discover the fabulous gift of a magnetic wall in his room. I could see his eyes open in amazement and wonder as he discovered that he had had it for years but discovered it just now.
