Giving STEM Christmas gifts to kids are the gifts that keep giving. Any of the gifts listed below are meant to challenge and excite kids who already love STEM or are new to the idea of STEM activities. Many of these gifts can be used with kids of ages and are educational for all.
Use this holiday season as a great way to encourage STEM learning on a daily basis. Once kids find out how much fun STEM can be, they will be more excited to do the “boring” school subjects like math and science.

These STEM christmas gifts will have kids playing and laughing and learning all at the same time.
How to Pick a STEM Gift for a Child
If you are choosing a STEM Christmas gift, always put the interests of the child first. If the child likes building, look for engineering kits like in our kids engineering gift guide. Or if science is what the child loves, pick something like Science Experiment Kits for Elementary.
Or if you know the child loves a particular theme, like dinosaurs or fairies, choose a STEM gift that includes that theme.
