Very, very weird.
For many families, school ended in March, long before summer began. Okay, not really ended, per se….But kids did largely switch to online, remote learning when it became evident that this Pandemic was hitting too close to home for schools to remain safe. My kids have always done remote learning, so this hasn’t seemed to abnormal for them, thankfully. I am so grateful that living in the Times of the Coronavirus hasn’t really phased them. I know for many, worlds have been flipped upside down, and that’s got to be challenging.
One challenge that my family hasn’t been immune to? Trying to avoid the COVID slide…Or summer slide….Let’s face it: Kids can lose their academic edge when school isn’t in session, and this virus has made that all the more likely to happen. It’s stressful for the kiddos, too! One way to help kids stay sharp in these weird, weird times is to help them learn while engaging in play. STEM themed toys like the ones I’ll be showing today are a great place to start!
Each set includes an illustrated manual with easy, step-by-step instructions for multiple designs, but the building possibilities are nearly limitless using your imagination.
We made the elephant first, and the instructions were pretty easy to follow. The addition of LED lighting made this project extra neat for my kiddos.
Want to build fun solar-powered vehicles and devices that move using electricity generated directly from sunlight? With this kit, you can construct five motorized models. Build three types of solar cars, a solar fan, and a solar robot model. Conduct science experiments with each model to learn about gear ratios, solar cells, and more. The ultralight materials, including strong bamboo rods, make your models speedy and durable. A modular gearing system lets you test out three different gear ratios.
This kit is super cool, and we love seeing our creations come to life with the help of the sun. This was fairly easy to build, too, making it ideal for even elementary aged kids. (With adult supervision, of course!)
Ages 8+ MSRP: $19.95.
Create 3D structures from 2D nets with Magformers Basic Plus 14Pc Set. Build with 4 Squares, 8 Triangles and 2 Inner Circle Square shapes. Create houses, towers and our ‘magic ball’. Learn to build using combine, roll and pull-up techniques and see what your imagination can create! Build along with the step-by-step instructions and develop color and shape recognition, fine motor skills and problem-solving ability.
How are YOU managing this summer? Are you alright? How are you combatting the summer or COVID slide with your kiddos? I’d love to hear your ideas!
