STEAM Experiments

Our STEAM experiments are always simple, easy, and fun! We try to use as few supplies as possible, and they’re usually things you already have around our house! Our goal is to make STEAM experiments accessible to all families, and kids of all ages – from babies to toddlers to preschoolers and beyond!

Salt Painting | STEAM Activity for Kids

This school year is starting off differently for us than previous years. My son is doing virtual learning with his elementary school, and I am homeschooling my preschool-aged daughter.

Learn How Soap Repels Germs | STEAM Activity for Kids

Grow Crystals on Seashells | STEAM Activity for Kids

We were lucky enough to take a day trip to the beach this summer. The beach is my whole family's happy place.

Make Rock Candy | STEAM Activity for Kids

Make Quicksand | STEAM Activity for Kids

Can You Fit Through an Index Card? | STEAM Activity for Kids

I held up a 3” by 5” index card and asked my kids, can you fit through this index card? It’s no surprise that they both giggled and said, “No!” I told them it is possible, and I'll show them how…all we need to do is make a few cuts with scissors to turn the index card into a connected chain that...

Dancing Raisins | STEAM Activity for Kids

Today’s STEAM Activity is Dancing Raisins! This activity is so simple but is incredibly fun and entertaining for kids.
