Rather than old CDs for a mirror take apart an old hard drive from a desktop computer, there are some great magnets in there and the disks themselves are nice metal mirrors. The disks inside laptop hard disks are usually glass or other fragile lite material and they shatter easily.

My kids love playing with the magnets (just don’t give them 2 at once, they are really strong and will really pinch hard if a finger gets between 2). The laptop drives do have usable magnets so you can at least use those from a junked drive, and many of the drive cases are aluminum so you could either melt them down if you do any metal casting or take them to the recycling yard for some extra money.
