I have found some great STEM deals on Amazon and thought I’d share what I find with you. I’m constantly on the hunt for good STEM toys we can use in our homeschool (and good buys to stock the gift closet!).
Teacher Created Materials for all grades and subjects
Run from $15-$25 and around 20% off that.
Kids can get daily practice on many different subjects with engaging activities and lessons. I like it because it’s quick and the twins don’t get bored. They like it because it’s quick lessons and they don’t get bored. Tie this into your curriculum or use it to find what kids are interested in. For instance, if your kiddo shows an interest in geography they’ll explore more with these books.

I’ve been waiting for this to go on sale! This is a visual feast for kids. The lavishly drawn illustrations make it something of a keepsake.

Smarty Pants – Kindergarten Card Set
We loved these when the twins were little. Ignore the kindergarten and start using these in early pre-k and into first grade. They love them! And it’s not so boring for parents, either. Always a good thing.
Simple Machines – Mechanisms That Multiply Force
This type of kit has been a favorite because it can be played with over and over, and over years. It basically grows with them and their interests. The kit combines 5 STEM mechanic sets for Levers(, Inclined Planes, Pulley Drives, Cams and Worm Drives (a personal fave).
Kids can build 60 working models, such as a “Scissor Lift, Catapult, Helicopter, Vise, Wind Mill” and a lot they hadn’t heard of but my son sure created! There’s also a manual with 70 pages of theory and facts a 16-page quiz (homeschool alert!), 25 pages of experimental activities illustrating, 3D rendered illustrations and more.
Mom tip – give the kid a box with compartments to store the parts so they can build to their little hearts contents without losing any little pieces you’ll find with your bare feet!
