I had barely heard of STEM or STEAM before I had kids. But when my son was born 8 years ago, I become almost instantly familiar with the term. Even now, with homeschooling during a pandemic, I try to focus on STEAM learning. I know that if I focus on STEAM learning, the rest will fall into place. And, despite there not being a ‘school party’ for Valentine’s Day this year, we are going to make cards and send them in the mail! And what better way than with punny STEAM Valentine’s Day Card printable!
Turn Real-Life into STEAM lessons
One thing I’ve learned over the last year is that you can turn nearly everything into a teaching moment. Homeschooling has given me the opportunity to teach my kids through crafts, cooking, and even outdoor play. And, although my kids might not know what Pi means; this is the perfect opportunity to introduce them to some new math terms!
Send snail mail with this STEAM Valentine’s Day Card Printable
My son reminded me that the last time he had a school party, it was just before the shutdown. Valentine’s day, actually. And, thinking back on his party with his friends made him happy. But he still wants to do something special for his friends, despite not being in-person with them right now.
We’re using this printable to send out Valentine’s Day cards to all of his old classmates. And practicing our handwriting by writing out their names and addresses on the envelopes to send old school snail mail.
