Christmas STEM activities for kids
Are you looking for some fun and easy Christmas STEM activities? Our resources help inspire the next generation of engineers and technicians, by encouraging them to try STEM activities at school or in their home environment.
Whether you are looking for short 30-minute crafts, long baking challenges, outdoor adventures, or Christmas science experiments that will get the kids buzzing, we have something for everyone.
Christmas STEM crafts
There are a variety of different activities for the craft wizards out there including winter window decorations, homemade snow globes, puzzling paper chains, rainbow Christmas trees, advent calendars, Christmas crackers, elf dressing and more!
These Christmas STEM crafts will not only allow kids to be creative, but will teach them about molecular bonds, positive and negative charges, sequences, chromatography and more.
Kid-friendly Christmas recipes
Perhaps you want something a bit more edible? Get your baking aprons on with our Christmas recipes for kids. Make edible snowmen, Rudolph thumbprint cookies, salt dough ornaments, marshmallow snowflakes and more!
These activities will allow kids to engage in maths and science, learning about Imperial Measurements, weights, osmosis, and even different states of matter.
Christmas-themed science experiments
We also have cool Christmas science experiments using resources where kids can get experimental with snow sparkle slime, fastest freeze challenges, frozen bubbles, lava lamps and even an electrical circuit made from playdough.
This will get them thinking about chemical reactions, mixtures, oxidization and bonds in molecules.
Winter-themed STEM activities
Or maybe you want to take the kids outside to enjoy the wonders of winter? We have plenty of Winter STEM activities with our winter scavenger hunts, eye spy Christmas eye and tree trunk challenges will keep you busy.
Not only will you test the kid’s maths and science knowledge learning about circumference and plant and animal life cycles, but you will also be able to have conversations about climate change and sustainability.
