We’ve all heard about the benefits of STEM activities for kids (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and what better way to inspire kids to develop skills in these areas than through Toy Making STEM Projects?
I’ve gathered together 16 of my favourite toy making STEM challenges from my archives and blogging friends that are sure to give your kids hours of fun and learning. Each of these exciting projects can be done easily at home using materials you will most likely have in your supplies already.
I LOVE that all of the toy making STEM projects give kids plenty of opportunities to think creatively, test their ideas and problem solve and of course they’ll have something fun to play with at the end too!
Each image is numbered and the corresponding link is numbered below it; just click the text to take you straight to each exciting STEM project.
