Remember when I gave you a list of 40 household items you can use to create spectacular, eye-popping STEAM and STEM projects right now?
Well, now I'm back with 52 STEAM projects for you and your kids to make with those items.
That's the equivalent of one project per week for one whole year.
Think what geniuses your kids will be in one year's time! (Okay, I'm sure that your kids, just like mine are already geniuses, so think of how much extra genius they will be.) And all without Minecraft.
Okay, I bet you are wondering about this brilliant book.
STEAM KIDS: 50+ science/technology/engineering/art/math/hands-on projects for kids.
STEAM Kids takes all the best STEAM projects and presents them in one easy-to-use format that will delight your kids and won't leave you pulling your hair out. - Brenda, Schooling A Monkey
I collaborated with some super talented women, including an MIT engineer, award winning educators, graphic designers, and homeschooling experts to create this resource. It's good for teachers, homeschoolers and regular-old parents like you and me. If a little ol' theater nerd me can co-author a book about science and math geeky stuff, you can certainly do all these projects no matter what your educational background. (P.S. I helped write the book, so obviously I am an affiliate.)
This book will turn you into Ms. Frizzle, but with more conservative fashion sense. —Julie

play like a kid

This gorgeous, beautifully photographed book is like candy for your eyes. But the creative ideas inside are the real treat. This book is filled with so many fun, educational, accessible, and unique activities. Teachers and parents will find plenty of ideas that inspire kids to build, think, learn, and create. I've been working in the STEAM space for quite a while, and even I found many new and exciting activities in this book to try with my kids and students. —Katie, Gift of Curiosity
