These tree slice alphabet magnets are a beautiful alternative to plastic letter magnets. Lowercase letters from a to z have been wood burned into each "tree cookie", then strongly affixed with a magnet on the back.
These small birch tree slices have all been kiln dried to prevent future cracks and to ensure there are no insects present. They have been lightly sanded to eliminate any sharp edges, but left with their natural raw wooden texture in order to maintain all the benefits of their tactile surface. No sealant or varnish has been applied to the wooden discs, allowing their natural qualities to remain intact.
When your child plays with these wooden letter magnets on a vertical surface such as a fridge or a metal door, it brings the task closer to their eyes, which helps to encourage hand-eye coordination. Children benefit from working with letter magnets on an upright surface because they are able to stand and move around (and as we all know, children are more engaged when they are able to be up and moving!).
Each set comes in a sturdy, handmade drawstring bag made of high quality canvas.
