Winter is now in full swing, and with that comes snow, at least for the New York area. This means it’s inevitable that kids will occasionally have to stay home from school during bad weather.
To keep your children from feeling bored when they’re cooped up at home during winter snowstorms, we’ve compiled some of the most fun winter-themed STEM projects for children.
The STEAM Powered Family blog contains many creative and fun winter STEM projects, including a project that shows children how to create an ice lantern, an activity that examines the effects of salt on ice, a recipe for artificial snow (for those who live in warmer climates), and more.
The aptly named STEM Activities for Kids website offers information for creating snowflakes.
These websites provide a wealth of ideas on how to get your children involved in fun STEM projects, even when they’re not in the classroom.
