If quarantine hasn’t taught you to save recycled items, start now saving those tubes now. With cds and recycled tubes you can invite a child to explore STEM block play in a while new way.
This isn’t traditional block play because the items being used are out of the norm, which makes for a great STEM challenge.
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math. With this STEM invitation the child is able to test how to build a structure through a lot of a trial and error, to test the right amount of pieces, to create a solid base, and attain basic engineering skills through using their fine motor skills. Building structures, whatever they may be, is an amazing way for a child to learn through play.
