Most of us have loved watching our kids play with MagnaTiles over the years. The 3D magnetic building sets are addictive for all ages. A new version of the popular building toy from CreateOn aims to light up the night for our healthcare heroes. While you’re home and looking for a way to show your appreciation for those on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic, you and your family can easily make a beautiful luminary for your front porch that’ll show them just how much you value them.
The CreateOn team was inspired by the movement to thank healthcare workers nightly at 7pm, and created these Luminary MagnaTiles as a response. Like all MagnaTiles, these pieces click together easily and you can build them in any way you like. They can also be used with any other existing Magna-tile sets you already have at home.
Once the kids have built their creation, simply add a tap or puck light (available from their store) or electric candle to the middle. This will enable you to display the beautiful luminaries on your porch to brighten the spirits of healthcare workers as they are driving to and from work.
The company is donating 20 percent of proceeds to Global Empowerment Mission, a charity that helps support first responders during humanitarian emergencies, like COVID-19.
Small sets of 3-inch tiles are $25, large sets of 6-inch tiles are $35 and you can get a combo set for $60. All are only available at createon.com, and there’s free shipping if you buy two or more sets (that includes other designs like the Eric Carle or rocket ship set lines).
