Science for the Summer

Summer break for young students can be such an exciting time, but this vacation can have two big downsides: 1) Kids aren’t practicing the skills they’ve learned in school for nearly 3 months, and 2) they tend to get bored without much to do for so long. A great solution to solve BOTH of these problems together is conducting exciting experiments at home over the break!

I have found some of my favorite experiments to do with children and am sharing the links. The best part is that all of these activities are extremely affordable (you probably have most of the supplies you need already). Hopefully these will serve as inspiration in helping make STEM a blueprint for problem solving for your kiddos while having a good time!
