Preschoolers love to build things!

BuildingbridgesMost small children learn by lots of hands on, trial and error effort. Little ones love to build things and figure out how things work. There are tons of STEM activities for older children, I thought it would be fun to do a series on STEM activities for Preschoolers. 

This week let’s build some bridges!
