HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
WELCOME TO 2018!!!
If you are anything like me, I love new beginnings and first few months in the New Year! It represents newness, a fresh start, a time to dream and set new goals, another year to see your little ones grow right in front of your eyes, and boy do they grow up quickly with STEAM & STEM Activities! There is a buzz and excitement in the air and people are mostly feeling positive for the new year.
This is also a great time to introduce your little ones to new or other STEAM & STEM Activities. Set the tone for the year and engage their minds early on in the year so that their beautiful minds may grow and learn. It’s also still holiday time and I’m sure you want to keep them busy whilst you get on with your day. Here are a few fantastic, fun and interesting activities that are sure to keep them busy.
7. Awesome LED House
Let there be light! Starting on a high and BRIGHT note, give the kids something spectacular with lights, LED and electronics by getting them to build their very own Awesome LED House by using electronics! This is a great way to get your children engaging and creating with electronics. (WizKids Club)
