My house is full of science, technology, engineering and (sometimes) math fans. My kids love building, creating, drawing, and using their imaginations to play and learn.
As their mom, I love seeing them grow and stretch in so many different and creative ways. If I can help that learning by using my love of crafting, well, I call that a mom win for sure!
Here are some easy STEM activities you can make with your Cricut machines.
For this rocket activity you will need:
Once you’ve opened up the retro rocket file, click customize so you can edit the file and make the rockets the size you want. And add duplicates of the file so that you can cut out several shapes in different colors and have variety.
Put the cardstock onto the light grip mat and load it into your Cricut Maker.
Use a couple different colors of cardstock so the kids will have some options for their rockets, stars and planets. Have the kids make their space designs using a white piece of cardstock and a glue stick.
My daughter used some markers to add some extra fun elements to her space picture. Like a green alien and rings around the planet.
For this project you will need:
First thing you need to do is to open up the timber tower Design Space File. It should be ready to cut as it is. Add your vinyl to your cutting mat and load it into your Cricut Maker.
Once it is finished cutting, it does take a little time to cut, weed the vinyl from the numbers. When weeding, you’ll want to make sure and take care. The only things I had an issue with were the equal signs, but if they come off, it’ll be ok.
You’ll notice that there are some boxes around the answers. That is just to help with the weeding and placing the vinyl onto the blocks. It allowed me to create the space to separate them from the other numbers.
Use the transfer tape to add the equation to the top of the blocks and the answers on the side of the block.
Try to mix up the answers with the equations. We don’t want the answer to match the equation on the block.
The purpose of this game is that when one person removes a block from the tower, the next person has to choose a block with the correct answer. This makes the game a little bit exciting and a bit harder. But the kids will learn their addition math facts!
Math is one of my daughter’s least favorite things. I’m hoping this STEM activity will help make learning her math facts fun.
Here are more STEM ideas from some of my crafty friends that they made with their Cricut machines.
Which of these STEM activities are you excited to try first? They all look like so much fun! And they are all easy to make with the help of your Cricut.
