10 STEM Activities For Kids

School has been out for four weeks for us. It feels like a different world literally. My kids and I did home school for three weeks and now we are on spring break. The first few days of home school were rough. Home school families have a ton of TIME to prepare for home school. Most are considering it for a while. We got one day. I am soooo glad there are so many resources for parents out there. There are almost too many choices. It has been great. Check out my blog on how to survive home school for tips.

In continuing with the home school theme I have collected 10 STEM activities to do with the kiddos. Some of these are so fun they can even be done after all this is over, which I hope is sooner than later. Check them out and let me know your favorite in the comments.

This water balloon activity from The Scrap Shoppe Blog is genus! It is light up bracelets inside of balloons filled with water. How cool is that?
This painting the Earth and Moon from The Scrap Shoppe Blog looks like a big hit. My kids are currently obsessed with anything that has to do with space.Not only can they paint the world with this activity, they can learn about different phases of the moon and sun, rotation of the Earth around the sun and along it rotating around its axis.

This next activity from Homemade Heather Inspired is just super cute. This Baby Yoda, or "The Child" piggy bank looks super easy to make.  And they can learn to count money at the same time too. My kids are obsessed with counting money right now.
This activity from 365 Days of Crafts can be used for the early learners. My 20 month old girl is starting to talk and say lots of words. She is also starting to soak in everything we are teaching her. What a great tool to know how to express the color of items.
This DIY Emoji Squishy stress ball activity from Hello Creative Family is super cute and made of slime. I would use it a lot.
How cool is this crystal eggshell geode from Jennie Masterson? My son is currently obsessed with science experiments.
We can not wait to make these DIY seed bombs from Giggles Galore. After the kids plant them they could observe the life cycle and talk about different aspects of each step in the cycle.
This scavenger hunt activity from The Scrap Shoppe Blog has my daughters name written all over it. She took us on a scavenger hunt to Easter and was beaming the whole time. She would get a kick out of this one and what a great way to encourage outdoor time.
This water fireworks experiment from The Scrap Shoppe Blog looks super fun and educational.
Who does not like a mess? All these activities from Sunshine & Munchkins look super fun and messy.

I hope these activities are useful and you can do a few with your kiddos. We need all the help we can get right now. Let me know which one is your favorite below.
