Why is STEAM learning important?
I’m a big fan of STEM learning for kids because I think it helps to create a well-balanced approach to learning.
It’s no secret that kids tend to like to do the same things over and over so combining a bunch of STEM activities means that they’ll be able to try out different activities to see what they like.
What is the difference between STEM and STEAM?
The basic difference is that STEAM includes the “art” factor while STEM doesn’t. Although you can easily do both and switch back and forth.

How to get gets excited about learning
One of the biggest things that parents talk about is trying to keep the excitement and wonder alive and active in their kids. I get that, we’ve all been there.
But when it comes to getting your child excited about learning, don’t forget that incorporating fun activities and ideas is key. We love to break up our day with these active activities that get our bodies moving and give us a change of scenery and pace as well.
This is why we love to do STEM activities and STEAM activities all throughout the year. Worksheets and printables are great but there’s just something so fun about hands-on activities and learning!
What are the benefits of a STEAM education?
There are so many benefits that you’re going to start noticing in your child. These spring STEM activities are a great place to start and to see if you notice a change.
First and foremost, you’re going to notice an increase in the willingness and wanting to learn. If you have a child who is often distracted or just doesn’t want to pay attention, activities like these are great. They’ll find a passion and excitement that they didn’t know they had!
These spring STEM activities will also help to enhance their critical thinking skills. While they’re not hard to do, they do require a bit of thinking outside the box. This is because the kids are going to have to do a bit of creative thinking and activity to get to a point where they’re excited and understanding of how these types of projects works.
Decision-making skills are also an active part of STEM learning because the kids will get to make their own choices about how to do these activities. This will help them with confidence and analytical skills as well and are a great way to help them get over their shyness and fears of learning.
Last but not least, spring STEM activities will make them curious for even more learning. This is huge when it comes to keeping kids active and interested in the learning process! Can you imagine the kids actually asking and wanting to do more school? How much fun, right?!
