STEAM AHEAD! DIY FOR KIDS: A Review
In an age of tablets, laptops, androids and everything electronic it is easy for children to miss out on the skills of how to complete DIY activities and let’s face it, those of us who were kids when there weren’t devices are pretty rusty when it comes to these fun skills, well look no further…
Steam Ahead is an activity packed book for parents and kids aged 4-10, it introduces our kids to the magic of electronics, game and toy designing, printing, understanding basic scientific principles and most importantly, they’ll have a blast making them.
STEM or STEAM is an acronym and stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.
If the fact that this book is on £1.57 for the kindle version and £7.87 for the paperback, but it is literally packed out with activities!
How often do we say that we buy kids expensive gifts and the end up making their own games out of the box or wrapping paper? Well now they have their very own guide of how to make their own games and it also improves their skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.
We know how hard it is to get kids to actually sit down and concentrate, well this guide gives them fun activities to create using their brains and hands which ultimately will improve their concentration skills, plus it’s a great bonding activity for parent and child or even for siblings/friends to do together and build their team work skills.
There are coloured difficult levels to work out what is best for which child, how great is that?! We all know kids develop at different levels and paces, now you have a guide of 1-5 difficult level.
What is even better is the activities are actually projects that kids WILL want to do, light up dance pads, pop up cards (great with Christmas around the corner), handmade soaps, bubble blowers, cloud lanterns etc. It’s so exciting!
The book also contains a list of materials so you can be prepared for doing the activities, there’s a full list at the back and short lists on each activities page, plus the activities themselves are short and easy to follow.
Kids like to move at a fast pace and it’s always best not to over complicate building new skills, so this guide is perfect for simplifying activities and making them easy to read.
The bright colours, great pictures and easy to read instructions make this the perfect guide for kids, with Christmas around the corner why not give your child the gift of skills and fun (plus it’s super cheap to buy).
Overall this book is the perfect activity filled, educational and most importantly fun guide you could get for yourself and your children, what are you waiting for…here are the links you need:
