What are Easter STEAM Activities?

An Easter STEAM activity is an educational activity for kids that contains elements of science, technology, engineering, art or design, and math.

Most STEAM activities contain at least two of the five STEAM elements.

If you are looking for strictly science experiments, we also have a list of Easter science experiments.

In a STEAM activity, kids learn how to understand the world, solve problems, and think in logical patterns to come up with possible solutions to the issue at hand.

With an Easter theme, the bright colors and familiar themes make learning easier and more fun for kids who might not have a natural interest in science.
