I know you have been looking for this book.
How do I know this?
Because I have also been looking for it! For a looooooong time in fact…
You probably already know that I love to do STEAM projects with my kids, in fact I consider cross disciplinary projects to be at the heart of raising and connecting with curious, creative kids.You can call them STEAM projects, or science arts, or cross- disciplinary, whatever you like, but the fact is projects that teach kids to make connections and problem-solve are the best way to educate creative thinkers.
And wait for the bonus…these types of projects are tons of fun and a great way to spend some time with your kids playfully learning! I mean really, what kid can turn down the invitation to make a PVC slingshot? Or grow some mold? Or make their own stop-motion animation film?
STEAM Kids is a fantastic resource for parents and educators for STEAM project ideas ranging from easy breezy (think sticker math art) to more involved (circuit bugs anyone?) for kids ages 4-10 (or frankly kids 4-99).
As a busy homeschool mom to three young children, I place a high value on STEAM activities and yet they can take time to plan. This book takes all the stress and work out of STEAM projects…I had to hide it from my kids when reading because they wanted to do ALL THE THINGS right away.”- Caitlin

STEAM KIDS is also available in print form via Amazon for those of you who love a good old fashioned book that you can peruse, dog ear, and take notes in… I consider myself in this camp.
Alrighty, I’m gonna leave it at that. This is a great resource. Period.
This book will turn you into Ms. Frizzle, but with more conservative fashion sense.” -Julie
STEAM Kids is a goldmine of inspiration for parents and educators who are hard-pressed for ideas that straddle the worlds of science, technology, engineering, art, and math. And what fun these projects are!” – Rachelle Doorley author of Tinkerlab: A Hands-On Guide for Little Inventors and founder of TinkerLab.com
