The trend of STEM inspired gift-giving continues this year, with more options to choose from than ever before! We’re excited to see more gift ideas that integrate the “A for art” into STEAM toys and activities.
If you’re looking for DIY presents that will be appreciated all winter long, this year’s winner is a fantastic site with ideas for infusing some science, technology, engineering, art, and math into your holiday season. Little Bins, Little Hands lists a number of engaging STEM projects and experiments, such as a free Christmas STEM Challenge Cards Countdown and a Tinker Kit. These projects are the perfect way to transform materials lying around the house into well-spent craft time with family and friends.
