Online Resources for Children and Teens During Social Distancing: S.T.E.A.M. Projects
Kids loved doing these activities at the library. Try them at home with materials you can find around the house.
Painting With Cups
Gather cups, bottle caps, yogurt containers, K-cups--anything round--and place them in paint. Kids can use both ends to stamp circles and experiment with size, colors, and patterns.
Punch "confetti" from different color paper using a single-hole punch. Let kids sprinkle on paint. Shake off excess when dry.
Cut sponges into shapes and let kids experiment with print-making. Rinse sponges and let dry to reuse.
Recycle wilting Mother's Day bouquets by placing blooms face-down in dishes of paint.
