It’s time to explore Spring STEM activities for kids! We have just passed daylight savings and the hint of warmer weather is approaching! Spring is an excellent time of year to explore plants, weather, light, bugs, and more! It’s also a great time to think about taking STEM activities outside. We have plenty of Science, technology, engineering, and math ideas perfect for Spring learning to share with you!

If you have kids who love to explore, discover, get dirty, create, tinker, and build, this is the STEM resource for you! However, if you are new to STEM or science, technology, engineering, and math, we have a few additional STEM resources you can check out just below.
STEM AND SCIENCE FOR KIDS
Science activities, science experiments, and STEM challenges are awesome for young kids! Kids are naturally curious and looking to explore, discover, check out, and experiment to find out why things do what they do, move as they move, or change as they change!
Our science activities are visually stimulating, hands-on, and sensory-rich for discovery and exploration of simple science concepts for young learners!
My son is 8 and we started around 3 years of age with simple science activities for kids. Here’s our very first experiment!
All our science activities and experiments are designed with you, the parent or teacher, in mind! Easy to set up, quick to do, most activities will take only 15 to 30 minutes to complete and are heaps of fun! Plus, our supplies lists usually contain only free or cheap materials you can source from home!
Provide kids with the opportunity for fun hands-on learning and sensory experience! Build their language skills, and social and emotional skills, as they work with you or others to understand their world through science.

MORE PLANT ACTIVITIES
Of course, when you plant something, you will end up observing it as well. These Spring STEM activities are more about observing the process of growing as opposed to the end result.
You will have a chance to watch the entire growth cycle of seed with a seed jar or experiment with the needs of a seed such as air, light, and water. Observe what happens each day. Measure growth.
Have fun with Spring weather activities too! Weather science can be pretty neat and spring is filled with all sorts of weather. Use some of the STEM Challenges in the next section to explore weather as well.
