I know you are looking for something unique for the holiday season, something that doesn't involve baking 25 dozen cookies. Am I right?
Something you can do with your kids that doesn't involve listening to Jingle Bells over and over?
Something that doesn't involve words like "Black Friday" or "Sales" or "Do you want that wrapped?"
Something that does involve "Christmas Science Experiments"????
(Disclaimer: I am a co-author of this book, so I earn a commission when you buy it.)
You're reading this post because you trust me, you know I really dislike paper plate snowmen and highly fussy activities, especially when I feel overwhelmed with the regular day to day life of being a parent.
You know I love family activities that involve a little learning. And that are easy. And that are fun.
So, I know you will want to investigate the STEAM Kids Christmas book edition.
I bet you are thinking,
Why would I want yet another thing to add to my holiday to-do list!!
Oh, I hear you, believe me. Let me explain...
- Do you make ornaments every year? We've got unique ideas!
- Do you have a family gathering coming up? Have the cousins get together and build snow blocks, or engineer a Christmas tree out of hardware instead of watching TV!
- Do you need after school boredom busters? Set out a tinker tray!
- Are you traveling? Five words: STEAM Kids Christmas coloring book.
- Are you at home during the school break? 'nough said.
- These ideas do not have to be done between Dec. 1 and Dec 25. They are excellent for year round fun.
I'll get into the nitty gritty of what you get below...
Now, let me tell you what you will get:
- A printable, build-able pop up advent calendar (Worth the price of admission alone!)
- 25 days of creative, artistic, inventive, tinker-intensive, mind-blowing STEAM projects to jumpstart your holiday season (Sneak peeks coming right up, below!)
- Clear instructions and materials lists
- STEAM Challenge cards
- Printables for many of the projects
- Further ideas for extension projects
- Journal pages so kids can dream up more amazing and inspiring experiments
- Appropriate for ages 4-10
- Free launch special: Free Christmas activity and coloring pdf ebook (regular price: $4.99)
What you don't get:
Complicated projects that you can't figure out, don't have time for or need to spend lots of money on.
I contributed two fantastically awesome fractal math art projects to the book. Holiday. Fractal. Math. Art. What more could you want to make your holiday fantastic? (Hint: all the other STEAM projects in the book.) The book contains Christmas science experiments like a candle windmill, holiday-themed engineering projects like building a jingle bell maze, mathematical brain teasers like geometric ornaments and artistic science explorations like psychedelic snowflakes.
The Christmas STEAM KIDS book brilliantly combines children's natural curiosity about science with their excitement over Christmas. This is a wonderful way to count down to the big day with your kids! —MaryAnne
And not only that, but our team has put together an amazing STEAM advent calendar for you and your kids. And get this, it is penguins! Penguins! The cutest bird in the world. Image your relief at not having to watch your kids get excited every morning over a stale piece of chocolate behind a teeny tiny now-ripped door.
And since we love you so, so, so much and you also want something your kids can do totally by themselves while you are baking 25 dozen cookies for your holiday party (Just kidding, you are actually kicking back with some mulled wine), for a limited time you get the STEAM Kids Christmas coloring book for FREE. (Be sure to follow the instructions at the bottom of this post to ensure you get this bonus if you choose to order via Amazon.)
The Christmas ebook contains the following goodies:
- 3D stars and Christmas trees
- Color by number
- Learn how to draw designs (like a snowman and penguin)
- Connect the dots
- And more...
The STEAM Kids team has done it again, but this time with Christmas. There are tons of activities for you and your kids to enjoy including a planning calendar and shopping list to make it easier on Mom and Dad. The steam challenge cards and advent calendar ideas are among my favorites! —Kim
But wait! There's more (as they say on TV).
Guys, our original STEAM KIDS book was a bestseller on Amazon. In layman's terms that means,
PEOPLE LIKED THE BOOK!

The Not-Fine Print: The ebook purchased from the STEAM Kids website is delivered as a digital pdf. Customers who purchase the STEAM Kids Christmas book via Amazon can send a copy of their receipt with order number to firstname.lastname@example.org to qualify for the free Christmas coloring ebook.

Alas, it is not available to Amazon customers, due to circumstances beyond the authors' control.
