As a mum I make a lot of stuff with my kids, but I do wonder sometimes if I lean too much towards the arts and crafts side of things, heck, I even had to quickly google to see if there’s a difference between engineering and construction for this post. (Don’t tell my Civil Engineer dad!) I love these engineering activities for kids though which I’m hoping will inspire me to do a few more engineering activities at home too!
Loose Parts Play from In The Playroom – such a simple idea that I know kids would love!
Hands On As We Grow made a Rube Goldberg Machine for pouring their cereal which is just too cool, you must check it out!
The Science Kiddo created a foam block challenge that is a great introduction to engineering for kids as the thought of it doesn’t scare me too much!
