The planets are easy to make with paper and colored rubber bands. We made these planets in a few hours. The planets can be put onto a mobile to hang in a child's room.
We will be sharing a few projects we make from this book. I purchased this book because it has 25 great STEM crafts for kids. The book has full color instructions on how to make each craft. This is a great STEAM craft projects too.
A lot of the projects can be completed with items you have around the house. Young makers can build an exploding volcano, race balloon rocket cars, construct a solar system, make a lemon battery, and more. Photographs and facts carefully detail the "why" and "how" of each experiment using real-world examples to provide context so kids can gain a deeper understanding of the scientific principles applied.
