It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like FREE Holiday STEM Resources!

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like FREE Holiday STEM Resources!

No time to investigate FREE holiday STEM resources? Once again, it’s that busiest time of the year when boxes of decorations are re-opened, holiday trees might appear, or fragrant pine wreaths adorns front doors. So, the holiday season has arrived, and the kids are excited and wiggly. What’s more, they’re waiting for that all-important day when gifts arrive under a decorated tree or in shoes set by the fireplace. As they wiggle and worm their way to that gift-giving day, what can you do to help settle them down and engage them in something other than mischief?

To help, we at STEM-apalooza!® have gathered a collection of FREE holiday STEM resources your kids can do at home (or at school). Whether you are a homeschooling parent or a traditional classroom educator, we have more than a few STEM holiday “goodies” for you here. What’s more, they can all be used immediately at low or no cost! So, this post is for parents, teachers and students who might need a little more help and support during this special but “antsy” time of the year! Enjoy—AND Happy Holidays, everyone!
