    Hi,
    I need to present an activity to four year olds. How do I explain the concept of magnetism and magnets to them in a simple way that they can understand? Examples/ sources would be greatly appreciated!

    I would just stick with teaching attraction and repulsion, and perhaps giving them magnets to figure out which things are magnetic, and which things are not.

    The Exploratorium is a good resource and has some example videos and lessons:
