Fun STEAM ideas to keep you and your kids entertained during social distancing!

Getting bored during social distancing? You’re not alone! That's why we created a list of fun and enriching STEAM activities for the whole family to do!


If your kids love science, here are some fun experiments the whole family can take part in!


  1. One of our favorite experiments as a kid was making oobleck! Oobleck is a non-newtonian fluid made of 2 parts cornstarch and 1 part water. When force is put upon oobleck it acts like a solid, while if you let it sit it acts like a liquid. Not only is it fun to play with, but it is a great teaching moment for your kids!

  1. If you have an outside space where you can practice social distancing, another fun project to do is make a soda bottle rocket using vinegar and baking soda. There are many great Youtube tutorials and blog posts on how to make one, but here is one we recommend. 

  1. Another fun experiment especially as the weather starts to warm up so to make ice cream in a bag! Here is a fun recipe that’ll keep the kids busy (and get you a yummy treat!).  


If your kids are into the Arts, here are some fun activities everyone can do!



  1. If you and your kids love to draw, enter our dress design competition! Email us your ideas at svahainc@gmail.com. We will create the designs we love, and send you a gift card along with the dress itself!

  

  1. Have your kids create a short skit! They can practice their writing and spelling by writing a script, and then perform the final product for the whole family!

  1. If your kids love clay modeling or playing with Play-Doh but you are out, here is a great recipe on making home-made Play-Doh! Not only will it be cool for them (and you!) to see how Play-Doh is made, but it’ll last for up to three months for lots of reusable fun!

Stay healthy and safe, svaha family!
