It’s time for 10 Days of Easy Easter STEM!!
I am so excited about these easy Easter STEM for preschoolers and toddlers
The goal of the next 10 days is to have a new Easter STEM challenge for you to do with kids every day to get into the Easter spirit.
I know, Easter is the last holiday is the whole string of holidays that starts at Halloween. But I think these easy and fun activities will help get you and your kids excited for one more celebration. Plus spring has us bursting with activity and ready to learn!
Don’t worry, these are all super easy but very engaging. The goal is to get your children questioning and exploring the world, not to get bogged down in too many details.

Easter STEM Activities for Preschoolers and Toddlers
These are more than just science activities. We are going to touch on all aspects of STEM, which stands for science, technology, engineering, and math.
We haven’t forgotten the importance of sensory activities with this series either. (All that observation and sensory exploration builds important STEM skills!)
Materials Needed for Easter Science Activities
None of these activities take too many materials, but there are a few special Easter items you will want to have on hand for the next 10 days. Don’t worry, the dollar store carries them all. I did not want to break the bank on this.
Here are the special things you will want to have on hand for these learning activities.
- Plastic Easter Eggs
- Jelly Beans
Yep, that’s it in terms of ‘
Easter STEM Activities
10 Days of Easy Easter STEM
Here are 10 simple and fun Easter STEM activities your kids will love. Be sure to pin this page so you can come back to it and do all the activities!
Edible Jelly Bean Slime
This easy homemade slime is taste safe! That makes it perfect for little ones who still want to explore everything with their mouths.
You can make this jelly bean STEAM activity and let your kids have a tasty afternoon of sensory fun!
Easter Egg Geodes for Kids
Did you know you can make your own geodes using eggs? Seriously, it is so cool and they grow overnight while you sleep. Wow your kids with their own Easter crystals.
Easter Rubber Egg Experiment (aka Turn Your Egg Into a Bouncy Ball!)
Want to make an egg bounce? Like a real, raw egg. It is possible. No tricks, just science. You’ll want to make a couple of these because they are just so cool to play with!!
Ink Chromatography Easter Decorations for Kids
This is a science Easter activity that is also an Easter craft! You start with the science of colors and turn your kitchen into a laboratory.
After the science you get to turn this beautiful experiment into fun Easter art!
Easter Bunny Launcher: A Peeps STEM Experiment
Want to send some bunnies flying through the air? Don’t worry, I’m talking about the marshmallow kind. You can do a lot of Easter STEM activities with peeps. This particular peeps STEM experiment is all about physics and fun.
Easter Number Sense Games for Preschoolers and Toddlers
Easter eggs give you a great way to work on so many basic math concepts. Work on counting, number sense, shapes, and basic addition with an Easter twist.
Jelly Bean Bottle Flipping: A Must-Do STEM Challenge
I know bottle flipping was a frustrating fad a couple of years ago, but it actually encourages kids to think through the physics of how the world works. Get some jelly beans and empty water bottles and create a physical and mental challenge your kids will love.
Easter Egg Submarines: A Sensory STEM Activity
Sink or float challenges are always a big hit, and they actually teach our little ones a lot. This version uses plastic eggs to add an element of imaginative play. You can challenge your child’s science skills and provide sensory fun!
Easter Egg Stacking: 3 STEM Challenges
Can you build the tallest tower from eggs What materials can help you build a sturdier house? How are your balancing skills?
Ask your children these questions as more as you encourage them to learn with these engineering challenges.
Jelly Bean Coding Activity: An Easter STEM Project
Coding is fast becoming a skill that kids need to be exposed too. You can do it in a very low tech way. Some jelly beans are all you need to create coding fun (with a tasty treat!)
10 Days of Easy Easter STEM
Here is what we are talking about when we say STEM.
Science: Where toddlers and preschoolers learn to observe and start to understand how the world around them works. This is where kids learn to ask questions.
Technology: Where children learn to use the tools that help them explore this world. Yes, computers and screens are a part of this, but they are not the whole story. Simple tools like scissors and magnifying glasses are a part of it too.
Engineering: Where children start to explore how things work. It’s building things like towers, and it is taking things apart to see how they fit together.
Math: Where children learn counting and number recognition. This is where we lay the groundwork of number sense. Number sense is the basic understanding that numbers have individual values and these values interact.
This is going to be so much fun! And don’t forget to make your Easter egg rocket with your kids to really get them excited about Easter STEM!
