Learning Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics through play and hands-on activities. 

Get Started

Infants

Learning through play is recommended from birth. With STEAM, infants will see interesting objects, explore and experience new textures, view things from different positions, and learn their actions have effects. 

Toddlers

Unstructured playtime is encouraged with toddlers. Letting the toddlers take the lead and the parents follow should be the focus of any learning. STEAM activities will allow toddles to explore empty containers, puzzles, make-believe play, and games. 

Preschoolers and up

Preschoolers will experience learning through structured and playful experiences. STEAM activities give preschoolers the opportunity to learn using worksheets, make-believe games, reality, and social interactions. 

Meet Cocoa Mom 

Hi, I am Nyetta. I am a Stay-At-Home-Mom with a passion for teaching. I became a SAHM in 2017 after my daughter was born. Being in the Army was very stressful for me, and I needed to take a new direction for my family. Becoming a SAHM was not easy, but I love being home with the kids.

I started this blog because I’ve found myself creating activities for the kids that encouraged learning while having fun. Most STEAM activities were directed towards the older kids and not the little ones. I genuinely believe all age groups can learn at their level and have fun while doing it.

My goal is to create activities for all age groups. Presenting children with the opportunity to play is one of the best ways to encourage growth. Research shows learning through play helps children become happy and healthy adults with skills needed in the world today.

Thank you for visiting the site, and I genuinely look forward to connecting with you.

Join Our Community

We are building a community for parents and caregivers to always connect activities to STEAM. I like to show STEAM is in our every day life, we have to slide the lessons in while having fun. I will post different activities for ages 0 -5 yrs old. I will include printables, schedules (sometimes), and monthly themes. Stay tuned for more as we grow as well. 

Our Children. Our Community. Our Future

“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning.

But for children play is serious learning.

Play is really the work of childhood.”  – Fred Rodgers

Learning Through Play

Toys and Object Play

This  phase occurs when children, usually infants, start to explore their sensory-motor skills. All children become tiny scientists as they explore different objects.

Physical Play

Physical play focuses on motor skills and emotional intelligence. This type of play helps all age groups build confidence while learning and exploring their peaceful space.

Outdoor Play

Children build and use all of their senses to expand their skills while playing outdoors. The right environment promotes diverse backgrounds and helps to develop friendships. .

Pretend Play

Pretending to play sparks creativity and builds on children’s communication skills. Children tend to negotiate during this play as well as they learn the rules and adjust.
