These STEM Challenges for kids help promote one (or more) of the following subjects: science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. In other words, they are very educationally beneficial while also being a ton of fun!
Making learning fun is always a goal for parents. You want your kids to be entertained, but nothing’s wrong when there’s a little education going on at the same time. It helps make the most of playtime. There are many STEM toys out there that are great at helping foster skills and learning concepts while also being fun for kids.
Speaking of STEM, however, your kids can have fun without buying special toys. There are many building materials you can use that are found in your own home! Things like:
- LEGOs (okay, this is a special toy, but most already have these painful blocks at home!)
- Aluminum foil
- Paper plates
- Empty toilet paper rolls
- Plastic wrap
It’s amazing what you can build with when you get a little creative!
STEM Challenges for Kids
We have put together a fun printable STEM Challenges pack for kids. We hope your kids enjoy building these different items using household materials. There’s also a fun STEM scavenger hunt included!
Once you print these fun STEM worksheets, you will see a number of fun activities. Clip the cards for more handheld fun or leave the paper as is. We recommend you print on cardstock paper so the challenge cards or sheets stand up to long-term use.
You’ll see the supplies list within the STEM Challenge cards. Your kids can refer to this each time they go to make something new.
Examples of building STEM Challenges for Kids that are included:
- Tall Tower
- Marble Maze
- Straw Rocket
You can always add to the challenges by coming up with more things for your kids to build and create!
STEM Scavenger Hunt
Give your kids a break at building by taking them on a scavenger hunt! This printable offers a list of STEM-related items that your kids can find at home or when out. Print the hunt again and again each time you go somewhere new!
When doing the scavenger hunt, your kids will have to find things like something…
- With wheels
- That needs a battery
- That cools items
- That can dissolve in water
All of the items in the scavenger hunt uses one of the fields of STEM, so they will be learning why they are searching.
