Challenge #2

Can you draw an invention made from LEGO's?

Did you know: LEGO has been with us through the years and has proven to be an effective tool in teaching our children basic skills needed in life. LEGO is not just child’s play, LEGO helps support child development in their own way. There are a wide variety of skills for your child to learn from playing LEGO.   For some great LEGO projects for kids visit yourcub.com

Challenge #3

Can you draw a shirt that does not fit?

Did you know: For example, babies, only hours after birth, experiment with cause and effect as they realize that putting their own thumbs in their mouths makes them feel better; toddlers push their sippy cups off the edges of their high chairs over and over and over again to test the limits of gravity; and preschoolers are eager to understand why their clothes no longer fit (life sciences) and are obsessed with the fair distribution of communal snacks (math). When parents or teachers believe these common myths about early STEM, those attitudes transfer to children. So spread the word: STEM is great for all children, it starts early, kids need opportunities to explore across all aspects of their lives, and you are completely capable of supporting their STEM progress. Be confident, have fun exploring the world around you with your little ones!
