You don't need fancy toys to create a very cool marble run. In this post I've collected more than a dozen creative ideas for making a DIY marble run. Making a marble run provides children with an open-ended challenge requiring creativity, ingenuity, and problem solving skills. Plus, kids can approach the task from whatever developmental level they are at, meaning they work for all ages! #marblerun #engineering #STEAMactivities #STEAMeducation #homeschool #giftofcuriosity || Gift of Curiosity Diy, Design, Stem Projects, Stem Activities, Science Activities For Kids, Science Activities, Science For Kids, Steam Activities, Foam Crafts

This stamping with blocks activity is a perfect, hands-on way to teach kids about 3-D shapes without having to "teach" them. Instead, the focus of this activity is on making art using 3-D blocks as "stamps." Children will naturally notice the different faces of each 3-D shape, helping them learn without having to be "taught." | #giftofcuriosity #shapes #handsonlearning #artsandcrafts || Gift of Curiosity Art, Teaching Shapes, Learning Shapes, Teaching Kids, Kids Art Projects
