Family STEAM Challenges Round-up

Last year we ran a week-long celebration of family STEAM and it was a blast! Here's a round-up of our favorite family STEAM projects to help you enjoy some quality play and learning with your littles.

 

 

Hexbug Family Race Night

 

 

Work together to build an ultimate race track for your mini robot bugs to race around. You'll have so much fun, although we have to warn you, things may get a little competitive!

 

 

Ready, Set, STUFF 'N SIT

 

 

Add the word 'race' to any activity and kids will be super excited to join in. This little guy challenged his Dad to the Great Stuff 'n Sit Race, with some sneaky numeracy work to figure out who the champion was!

 

 

Engineering LEGO Bridges

 

 

Gather the whole family and challenge them to build the strongest bridge possible out of LEGO bricks. Creative QT owners and founders, the Hinkle family, had a blast with this one!

 

 

Abstract DUPLO Art

 

 

This creative STEAM activity combines puzzles, problem solving and some Piet Mondrian inspired painting. Look at those vibrant colors!

 

DIY LEGO Compatible Fish Tank

 

 

Looking to freshen up your building brick play? Why not build in a completely novel space?! We used two of our Peel 'n Stick Baseplates to make the bottom of a fish tank LEGO-Compatible. Building underwater was so much sensory fun!

 

 

Learning Colors with DUPLOs

 

 

Knowing your colors is such a key skill for art success. That's why we love to come up with creative and hands-on ways to teach our kids about colors. This post included details on how to make this affordable DUPLO compatible play table, and three simple ways to teach your kids about colors using building bricks.

 

 

We hope you are feeling inspired to spend some quality time together enjoying play and learning through the power that is STEAM!
