Valentine's Day STEM Activities

Unbeknownst to the hellish little gremlins we call children, learning new things can actually be exciting. These Valentine’s Day-themed STEM activities probably won’t grant your little nugget admission to Harvard, but it might help them learn a thing or two.

Layered Love Potion

Double, double, love, and cuddles. This layered love potion has an eye-catching color scheme that makes for a colorful lesson on density and water polarity. Your kid might try to drink it though, so be wary.

Light Up Circuit Valentines

Children and wires aren’t typically a match made in heaven, but this project is an exception. Your little ones will be abuzz with excitement when they see their homemade cards come alive with flashing lights.

DIY Cupid’s Bow 

If you have children, you know how much they love apparatuses that fling sh*t across the room. Just don’t blame us if your kid targets the family dog with this perfect cupid’s bow.


Slime is no longer reminiscent of toxic sludge and confined to 90’s Nickelodeon shows. This valentine’s option is blush in color and sprinkled with glitter and confetti hearts.

Conversation heart catapult

Whether you love them or loathe them, you’ve gotta admit that candy conversation hearts are great for arts and crafts projects. This catapult only requires popsicle sticks, twine, plastic spoons, and some candy to launch into action.
