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!

Peeps Easter STEAM Activity for Kids

If the Easter Bunny brings your kids Peeps, but the kids discover they don’t like them (like my kids did), then try this easy experiment instead of throwing them away! We did two experiments in one: “Sink or float?” and “Will it dissolve?” and I share the simple instructions in this post. I made a...

St. Patrick’s Day Play-Dough | STEAM Activity for Kids

Green is my favorite color, so we go all out with everything green on St. Patrick's Day.

Last year I shared a fun and easy play-dough recipe on the blog. We...

Bowling and Building with Toilet Paper Rolls | STEAM Activity for Kids

It's Engineers Week, and today is Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day! As a college student, I was an active member of my university's chapter of Society of Women Engineers (SWE). Volunteering to do outreach to school aged girls was my absolute favorite part about being in SWE. I loved showing...

Cinnamon Ornaments | STEAM Activity for Kids

These cinnamon ornaments add a beautiful personalized look to your Christmas tree, and they add the festive fragrant smell of cinnamon to your tree (and house as they cook). This is the first year I've made ornaments with my kids. They are ages 6 and 4, and are the perfect age to really help and...

Candy Corn Halloween Experiment | STEAM Activity for Kids

Virtual school for my first grader son has its challenges, but it has some perks too. I am loving the extra time at home with my kids. We are usually able to finish up his afternoon activities a lot quicker than the time allotted for the class, so we have extra time to play, or do fun activities....

Tie-Dye T-Shirts | STEAM Activity for Kids

I am so excited that tie-dye is coming back in fashion. I love bright colors, so for me the more colors the better for my tie-dye t-shirts. And tie-dye is even more fun to wear when you make the t-shirt yourself! We had so much fun with this activity that my kids immediately told me they wanted to...

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

My son started virtual learning for 1st grade last week. We've had our ups and downs figuring out this new way of learning, but overall it's been a great experience. His first science assignment was this fun experiment (talk about a teacher after my heart!). I have seen this experiment gaining...
