There are so many fantastic STEM and STEAM activities for Easter, and spring, that I just HAD to put together another round-up of for you! If you missed it, earlier this week I posted about 20+ Fun and Egg-citing Egg experiments and engineering projects. Here in our home, we’ve been so busy with spring cleaning and fixing up things around the house that we haven’t yet done any Easter projects…yet. I’ve been looking through these Easter STEAM ideas and I have my eye on a few of them for the coming week!
Fun Easter STEAM Crafts
Just giving this set of activities a quick look over, I can already see ones that I think my children would love to do…LEGO comes to mind, and while spring cleaning the cupboards I came across the bubble solution, so I think we’ll work on that one, too. Unfortunately, I have yet to find Peeps in my neck of the woods, but should I ever find them at a foreign foods shop, I’ll be gathering up a brood in the name of science!
1 – If you’d like to encourage creativity in your children, Little Bins For Little Hands shows how she puts together an Easter Tinker Basket that can be re-purposed.
2 – Jelly beans are so versatile! Here Weaving Ideas uses them in a colour matching game.
3 – Weaving Ideas creates a family Easter garden.
4 – Schooling a Monkey shares a few STEM ideas to try if you have some Peeps.
5 – Go Science Girls makes egg-shaped bubble wands and learns why bubbles are round no matter what shape of a wand you use.
6 – Little Bins for Little Hands has been busy with a LEGO Easter Eggs Basic Brick Building Idea.
Easter Math, Science, and Crafts
I’m really pleased that there are so many things to do with brown chicken eggs. I do miss having easy access to white ones, particularly in the run up to Easter as they’re so easy to dye, but in the absence of white eggs, here are a couple of fun things to do with those brown shells to make them look good. The butterflies are just starting to appear, but we haven’t yet seen one outdoors…but we can make such pretty ones for inside! And then after Easter when there are plastic eggs underfoot, we can turn them into math games-yeah!
7 – I’m loving the cute little egg shell garden that Schooling A Monkey has created!
8 – I’ve been having issues trying to dye brown eggs here in the UK, but Edvendtures With Kids has turned it into a science experiment…go have a peek at her results.
9 – Weaving Ideas has created a cute and simple egg stand.
10 – iGame Mom has been busy and shares 10 Ways To Learn Math With Easter Eggs.
11 – Egg painting with vinegar? Absolutely! And iGame Mom will show you how.
12 – The butterflies have just been spotted this week, but they aren’t as colourful as these coffee filter butterflies at Red Ted Art.
