Do you know what S.T.E.M. toys are? S.T.E.M. stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. This means that this toy stimulates scientific thinking, such as critical thinking skills, spacial recognition, architecture and engineering. As I’ve learned more about S.T.E.M, I see how important it is for little ones to play with these types of toys. I notice that my boys gravitate towards these toys, which I think is great!
Today I want to share with you some wonderful S.T.E.M. toys. These would make great gifts!

K’nex have been around forever! You can build so many things with K’nex.
This is so cool. You can build your own house and actually wire it up to have lights and make elevators move and more! I saw this toy on Shark Tank and think it is amazing!
This looks like SO much fun! Kind of like building a gingerbread house!
Legos are just awesome. SO much learning is happening when kids are playing with Legos!

How fun does this toy look?! You can build a lot of neat things with Joinks.
These looks so inviting to play with! You can really be creative with this toy. These are made with 100% silicone and they are BPA free.
This would be a great kit for science experiments! I love how it teaches kids about measuring.
Need some help with science activities? Then you’ll want to check out this kit! Lots of neat science ideas.
There are so much more I could add to this list! These are just some of our favorites. What S.T.E.M. toy would you add to this list?
