Before STEM was a “thing”, we have loved games and educational toys that fit this category. My kids all love to work with their hands and build things. A couple of them are definitely engineers in the making. I have one that is big into science and experiments. I have a couple that are really good in math and love anything to do with logic. So, finding a game that works for all of them can be tricky, but we have found a few that work.

If you have a child or children that love STEM activities, check out some of our favorite STEM Toys! STEM is a great way to include hands-on learning for kids of all ages. :: www.homeschoolgiveaways.com

While we love to play games, I am not opposed to toys that are also educational. We try to limit the number of toys our children have, notice I said *try*, but if they are both fun and educational its hard to say no.
