Those cute hands on school science projects were amazing opportunities for me to learn, apply and retain the information. Sometimes that is all it takes to make those lessons memorable. Later on, we went on to have frogs and fish and even a turtle as a childhood pet. Watching them grow and learning about how to take care of each one was a great opportunity for everyone. Eventually we got a cat and fish plus cats, well we all know how that goes, right?

What is in this Booklet?
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

How to Get This Building Challenge
Just click on the link below and it will download for you. Consider printing this out and hanging it in the playroom, or wherever the Lego or Duplo building blocks are. If you have a laminator, you could laminate it and keep it for years.
Lately, I am laminating all of the crafty things here. It makes me happy.
