The possibilities are endless with this fun Halloween-themed STEM activity! With simple supplies, your child will experiment, adapt, and use their creativity while they build structures using different specifications. First, your children will make their own mini jack-o'-lanterns with styrofoam balls, paint, permanent marker, and toothpicks. Then, they will use them to build their own creations such as robots, houses, and spaceships. This is a great project to gather friends to participate as a team, which provides opportunities for adaptation, communication, and teamwork!
