ALL ABOUT INEXPENSIVE STEM IDEAS


STEM is a really wonderful learning concept that includes science, technology, engineering, and math. All kids should have a chance to try STEM challenges, Science Experiments, and Tinker Trays. Sounds pretty expensive doesn’t it? It doesn’t have to be. We have been collecting materials for some time on different trips to dollar stores, hardware stores, and even our recycling bin. Inexpensive STEM ideas are awesome.


FINDING INEXPENSIVE STEM SUPPLIES


We love to build structures and try out different STEM challenges. There are so many places to find supplies like the dollar stores, grocery stores, hardware stores, and even your junk drawers and tool boxes. The recycling bin is a great option too. To start, get a large container and start saving neat things. Check out the handy lists below.


HOW TO MAKE INEXPENSIVE TINKER TRAYS


I have enjoyed making some themed tinker trays this year starting with this past Christmas, Valentine’s Day, and St. Patricks Day. An Easter tray is in the works. I also like to keep a small tinker kit/tray/box on hand for every day use as seen far right. Scissors, paper, markers, and our recycling bin collection are always available as a compliment to our trays. In addition many of our holiday theme STEM challenges use much of the materials on these trays. Click on the blue links below.

IDEA FOR INEXPENSIVE STEM ACTIVITIES


Simple and inexpensive STEM ideas make learning fun and easy for parents, teachers, and caregivers. Fancy supplies just aren’t necessary when introducing young kids to STEM. Keep it simple! Some of the best STEM challenges and science experiments use what you already have.

SUPPLY LISTS FOR INEXPENSIVE STEM IDEAS


I have made some simple supply lists below. They are by no means comprehensive but rather a sampling of supplies we currently have on hand. I like to check out the dollar stores with the change of seasons and holidays to find new items or replenish highly used items. They even sell simple tools.
