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!

Cinnamon Ornaments | STEAM Activity for Kids

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.

Tie-Dye T-Shirts | STEAM Activity for Kids

Make Rock Candy | STEAM Activity for Kids

Today is my kid's first day of school. Our summer felt long, but now that school is starting we're all saying it was too short! It's all about perspective, and hopefully with this experiment we can teach our kids that the wait for these rock candy treats is worth it when they are enjoying their...

Make Quicksand | STEAM Activity for Kids

When my kids were playing in sand recently I mentioned something like, “hopefully it isn’t quicksand.” My kids both asked, “what’s quicksand?”.
