Give her a Harry Potter clock tower or astronomy scene and she’s transfixed for hours, until it is finished. She’s my puzzler, the one who loves to build and make puzzle pieces fit.
While I love writing and creative pursuits, I am less skilled at building. Summertime is the ideal time for creativity and getting outside. Swimming, walking, hiking and camping – these are my favourite things to do in the warm months, but there are many days when the weather gets in the way, or when you just need a change of pace.
STEM learning doesn’t have to be hard.
You can simply provide the materials and offer a visual summertime building challenge.
WE loved this Classic Lego set when the kids were younger.
STEM Summertime Learning
Those days, the rainy ones, or the ones full of thunder and lightning storms, are the days that are perfect for building challenges. Take this summer themed building challenge and make it your own for the entire summer season.
While it is 30 days of challenges like build a canoeing scene or an ice cream truck, you could also just use it all summer long as needed. You don’t necessarily have to go in order either. It’s up to you, and your kids, just let them have fun exploring building
