STEM Activity for Kids: How to Make Straw Rockets (w/ Free Rocket Template)- Fun for a science lesson, outdoor play activity, or unit on space! Great for students in a special education classroom. Work on oral motor skills as well as sensory play.
You will need thick straws (thin ones work too), small sheets of paper. Using straw players will need to suck the paper sheets and transfer them from one pile to another. Whoever does this first WINS the game.
Bottle Catch Don't throw away those empty bleach bottles -- transform them into an outdoor catching game! Cut the end off a cleaned bleach bottle and remove the label. Wrap the bottle with colorful tape, and you're ready to play catch!
