It may be summertime, but that doesn’t mean the learning can’t continue. We’ve rounded up some fun STEM activities for summer that your kids are going to love. They’re great ways to learn some math and science without even really realizing that they’re learning! That’s just how much fun they are.
From getting messy to building things and so much more, there are tons of ideas here that are sure to appeal to every kid (or kid at heart). We searched the internet and found these STEM ideas that we know we would have fun doing ourselves so they’re sure to please your kids too. Sure, online school may be over and fall school hasn’t started yet, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t keep the education going. It’s just that this time, instead of feeling like drudgery, it’s all about having some family fun!
