Building a Spookley pumpkin STEM activity is a great way to pair a STEM activity with a favorite fall book. Spookley is an awesome pumpkin and Halloween story for kids. If you haven’t read Spookley yet, it’s worth a trip to the library. I love the message the book presents to kids and parents, and it’s a great way to talk about how our differences make us great. Fun Fall STEM for early learning!

Books are a great resource for STEM activities and not even books written specifically with STEM in mind. Check out Pumpkin Jack and our rotting pumpkin activity or our rubber band car for our favorite superhero book. A book about a square pumpkin makes a particularly fun book to pair with a simple STEM activity. Building 3D shapes!
