April holidays are varied and many are celebrated around the world. Holidays that can be celebrated and explored through STEAM activities have been placed on this month’s calendar. (If you are new to the monthly STEAM activity calendars, please explore the calendar from previous months.)

Downloading the April Holidays 2022 STEAM Calendar
The calendar is a PDF. Once you have downloaded, the set you will need to open it with a PDF reader like Acrobat Reader.
Exploring the Activity Calendar
You will be able to access the directions needed to explore each activity when you click on each of the April hyperlinks. After you get to each activity’s blog post, you will find a supply list and step-by-step activity directions.
Many of the activities offer free worksheets or recording sheets. You can use what they have for you to download or create your own versions of the activities if you like. The idea is to inspire you to explore STEAM activities with your children. You know what they can handle and how they like to explore concepts and activities.
A variety of different types of STEAM activities have been included on the calendar. You may find that some are more appropriate for older children while others are great for children of all ages. I think that some of them could be done with a partner or parent. However, some of you may have children that want to complete them on their own.
