STEAM Valentine’s Day Projects For Kids

By: Andrea Dillon 

Holidays are a great time to pull in fresh ideas for your homeschool and make the day exciting and fun. I always enjoy trying to find something to break up our typical day, but I get tired of just seeing the overly familiar worksheets or cut and paste activities. For Valentine’s Day this year, I decided to add STEAM fun to our Valentine’s Day. Below you will find Valentine’s Day activity ideas for science, technology, engineering, art, math, and more.

 

Valentine’s Day Science Activities 

Science can always be a fun learning time that feels like a break. There are just so many various projects and ideas out there to try. Give these Valentine’s Day science activities and experiments a try.

  • Experiment with candy hearts and investigate what happens when you add them to different liquids.
  • Write a secret message to your Valentine with invisible ink and then let them figure out their secret message.
  • Explore static electricity and try to make cupid fly.
  • Use all that Valentine’s Day candy and investigate which chocolate melts faster. Science and a sweet snack. Extra bonus!
  • Make a one of a kind Valentine’s Day keepsake by turning milk into plastic and creating something special! I love this one. We made heart keychains for our friends!

 

Technology and Computer Science Valentine’s Day Activities 

Technology is taking over the world. Tablets, phones, and computers surround us. It is important to include technology education in your homeschooling  —what better way than by adding in some technology and computer science Valentine’s Day activities.

 

Engineering Valentine Projects 

Engineering is a great way to help inspire your children to think creatively. Give these fun Valentine’s Day projects for kids a try. If your children like these and you want to try your hand at more engineering ideas, try creating a makerspace at home!

  • Break out the LEGO bricks and make a candy box to hold all your sweet treats.
  • Perfect structural skills and problem solving by creating a paper heart sculpture.
  • Create a candy catapult and see who can launch their treats the furthest!
  • Stack them tall before they fall with the candy heart tower challenge.
  • Design and build your best heart candy structures. Make a house, rocket, or whatever your heart desires! This one is going to become a Valentine’s Day tradition in our house.
