From walking rainbows to coding coins, these St. Patrick’s Day STEM challenge cards are perfect for celebrating the holiday with STEAM!
You’ll find a ton of STEM activities that are filled with all things St. Patrick’s Day, but you’ll also find some fun Spring STEM activities as well!
This time of year is filled with lots of snow and bitter cold in Wisconsin for us! We like to spend our time inside (and warm!) exploring a ton of different STEAM concepts for St. Patrick’s Day!
We decided to make a list of our favorite activities this time of year and then turned them into St. Patrick’s Day STEM challenge cards, so that no one is ever “bored” and can easily find a fun, seasonal STEAM challenge to complete!
