Are you intimidated by the thought of STEM activities at home? My boys and I love getting hands on, and experimenting together. Most of our experiments do not even require a trip to the grocery store. A lot the activities we do together I pull together using ingredients we already have right home! So if you think you need to go out and buy a bunch of supplies to add STEM to your kids’ day, check out one of the following STEM activities for the kitchen. You might be surprised which ones you can do today!
