SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS AND STEM ACTIVITIES
Science experiments, activities, and STEM challenges are awesome for young kids! These activities are visually stimulating, hands-on, and sensory rich for discovery and exploration!
My son is 8 and we started around 3 years of age with simple science activities for kids. Here’s our very first experiment.
We show you what to work with from around your house. These activities and experiments are all parent friendly and quick to set up. However, they provide so many wonderful sensory experiences.They are also excellent for building language skills and social/emotional skills as you work together.
WHY IS SCIENCE SO IMPORTANT?
Kids are curious and always looking to explore, discover, check out, and experiment to find out why things do what they do, move like they move, or change like they change! Indoors or outdoors, science is definitely amazing!
Science surrounds us, inside and out. Kids love checking things out with magnifying glasses, creating chemical reactions with kitchen ingredients, and of course exploring stored energy! Check out 35+ awesome science projects to get started.
There lots of easy science concepts that you can introduce kids to very early on! You might not even think about science when your kid…
- pushes a car down a ramp.
- plays in front of the mirror.
- laughs at your shadow puppets.
- bounces balls over and over again.
- fills up a bucket of water and dumps it out.
See where I am going with this list! What else can you add if you stop to think about it?
Science starts early, and you can be a part of that with setting up science at home with everyday materials. Or you can bring easy science to a group of kids! We find a ton of value in cheap science activities and experiments.
NEW! We will be sharing a monthly STEM calendar sent to subscribers a week before the end of the month! Make sure to SUBSCRIBE HERE.
