DIY At-Home Science, STEM and STEAM Summer Camps

Are you looking for an engaging, fun and educational way to spend the summer with the kids without spending a lot of money? We've included a bunch of great ideas for creating your own science, STEM and STEAM camp right at home this year. These plans would also be excellent for daycare, traditional camps and summer schools.

From kits that are completely packed and planned for you, to activities you can put together with supplies from home, you'll definitely find something useful here. Not only will providing science, technology, engineering, art and math activities boost your kid's brains and help combat the summer slide, but they are also super fun!
