Playdough

STEM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering, and math. Even though science, technology, engineering, and math may seem like a lofty subject matter for preschool children, preschoolers spontaneously engage in STEM activities indoors and out on a regular basis.

With a little help from us, we can support children’s opportunities to engage in STEM learning and develop their critical thinking skills. The possibilities for STEM education are endless. Children love to experiment, combine new substances, build, knockdown, collect, sort, and have fun while learning.

You were probably having your child do STEM activities at home and didn’t know it. Look for additional opportunities to build STEM activities in your daily routine. Try this fun STEM activity

Tddler Activity: Explore the outdoors with your little one and gather some grass, flowers, sticks, and leaves. Then use what you find to make a Nature Suncatcher.
