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

Learning about symmetry is way more fun when you get to play with building bricks, especially our Pixel Bricks™! We are sharing a really fun and hands-on way to learn an early Math concept through an invitation to decorate butterfly wings.
Here are a few of our favorite April Fool's Day prank ideas we've done to our kids over the years. Most of which are last minute ideas (cause that's how we roll)!
Creative QT® co-owner, Adam Hinkle, lovingly refers toPixel Bricks™ as 'LEGO™ glitter' because they do seem to have a way of finding their way all over the floor if not properly stored. The good news is, however, we have loads of simple and affordable ways to store them all in this one blog.
