My blog exists to help parents of children ages 0-5 years old with fun and educational STEAM activities.
Most parents are looking for a break, and sometimes parents are looking for ways to spend more time with their kids. After surveying with parents, mostly moms, parents want a 15 to 30-minute break. A break without always having to put the kids in front of a device. I can and will help with 15 to 30 minutes of engaging, fun, and educational activities. Now, here are five ways I can help.
1.Empower you with the skills they need to identify STEAM in their everyday life.
STEM and STEAM sound so intimating for most parents, and it can be. STEAM is an acronym that stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. The combination of all of these subjects creates a spark in children. The confusion with STEAM is that it is so complicated that only children six years old and up can benefit from learning STEAM. This is not the case.
STEAM is used to create an out of textbook learning experience by doing the activity and going through the process. I will provide resources and tips to show how kids in our everyday lives use STEAM. STEAM is naturally in my children’s daily routines. They do not notice, nor are they stressed from overload.
2. Provide easy to follow guides and lessons on how STEAM works with little ones.
Each activity will include instructions, guides, resources, and stimulating questions or conversation starters for your children. STEAM is not a textbook and dictated learning experience. The activities will include guides and instructions because they are younger, but it will be flexible.
The children are encouraged to use their imagination. I will post activities related to books and cooking as well. Everything we do is a learning experience. We, as parents, need to bring awareness and expand on each moment. Children will learn based on what they feel inside.

3. Recommend quick and simple activities.
Parents shouldn’t complicate activities at this age. The kids will get bored and do not sit still long enough for complex activities taking hours and hours. Children like learning and doing hands-on activities, but their little attention expands are concise.
I have two small children under 5, so I understand the need to keep things simple. Most of the quick activities will be theme-based activities, expanding on what they’ve learned. Children are like sponges. They can know and have the best time in 15 minutes.
4. Help parents instill play through process skills into their littles.
Play is necessary for this age group, not optional. Many parents see games as fun, but it is the primary way kids learn in this age group. Children learn to build relationships through play and how to express themselves.
Learning through play also helps children to expand on their life skills. Games help to teach and develop skills like inquiry, expression, experimentation, and teamwork. For example, my kids love playing school, and they even pull out the chalkboard at times to do math problems and draw shapes.
5. Write a weekly blog post to help parents on their journey.
Parenthood is tough. With working, cleaning, cooking, and managing finances, it is hard to find time to plan educational activities for your little ones. I will provide detailed, fun, and educational activities in my blog posts. I am eliminating this task so you can focus on everything else. Be sure to subscribe to get free activities in your inbox.
So, STEAM is not complicated, and you should introduce it early on. We will not complicate things. Subscribe below, and let’s keep things fun, educational, and simple!
