All the buzz in educational talk is about STEAM. If you aren’t familiar it stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math. As caregivers, we all know how children learn through play. One toy has stood the test of time, requires no wires and has endless possibilities. Of course, that would be snap-together bricks aka Legos, Duplos, etc.
My sons always thought outside the box, literally, when they had these. We may have bought them in kits (ships, castles, etc.), but my boys always made something different. For children like mine, these 20 activities are perfect.
Now kids can combine a love for LEGO with learning STEAM topics (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) in this awesomely fun activity book! Industrious minds will love learning to build a bunch of different stuff with these 20 step-by-step projects that range from beginner projects, such as a geoboard and DIY slime, to more challenging projects, such as a bird feeder and balloon racer. Large, full-color photos show each step along the way, with simple instructions and inspiration to extend projects and keep learning. With STEAM learning on the rise, this book is the perfect way to inspire play and interest in the topics kids need to know about!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: A stay-at-home mom of three boys, Courtney Sanchez began crafting as way to keep her children stimulated and active. Having time to sit and be creative with children, and to explore using texture, colors and (most importantly) their imagination is a great way to bond and teach at the same time. Her website, Crafts by Courtney (www.craftsbycourtney.com) explores a variety of activities and how-to kids crafts to keep children active and inspired through creative play.
