    Over the years, we’ve shared some of our favorite kid-friendly magnetic DIY crafts, from hidden messages and magnetic slime to Valentine’s Day string art and tie-dye marbled clay magnets.

  9. The Mystery of Magnetic Mesoamerican Sculptures

    The Mystery of Magnetic Mesoamerican Sculptures
    We’re fascinated by the creative endeavors of those before us, especially when their art involves magnetism. New research, published in the Journal of Archaeological Science, suggests that ancient sculptors intentionally chose magnetized rocks when creating their masterpieces. Over 2,000 years ago, sculptors in modern-day Guatemala carved “potbelly sculptures” out of boulders. These sculptures depicted figures of obese humans nearly six and a half feet tall and roughly 22 thousand pounds. There’s more to these sculptures than what meets the eye, though. Continue reading →
