Let’s finish 2020 strong with four awesome STEM projects! The December Winkle Crate is full of festive fun, with activities perfect for celebrating the holidays and learning, too.
The Winkle Crate is our STEM subscription box for kids. Every Winkle Crate comes with everything you need to complete four DIY-style, kid-friendly STEM projects. Not only that, but each Winkle project has online video instructions that walk your child through each step and explain the STEM principles behind the project. Your child will be able to independently complete these projects (younger kids might need a little help), which is great for their learning and confidence, and great for your sanity. Our projects are always STEM-based and DIY-style, meaning they are open-ended and easy to replicate and modify with supplies you might already have at home.
Here’s a sneak peek of the projects you’ll receive in the December Winkle Crate, and read on to learn about our special offer that ends soon!
Santa Sleigh Zipline (Engineering)
Send Santa zooming in your very own Santa Sleigh Zipline! Experiment with adding different objects to the sleigh and adjusting the angle of your zipline. What makes the sleigh go the fastest? In the instructional video, we’ll talk about the science behind this project, including friction, gravity, and slope.
Watercolor Postcard (Art)
Design a postcard to send in the mail! This fun art project is the perfect way to spread some holiday cheer. In the instructional video for this project, we’ll talk about the postal service and how it works.
Automation Toy Box (Engineering)
Make a spinning toy box featuring a hockey player or figure skater. The video instructions make this engineering project doable even for younger kids, and the completed project is so much fun!
Celebration Time: Confetti Popper and Harmonica (Engineering, Science, Art)
Get ready to ring in the new year with this celebration time project — which is actually TWO projects in ONE. Kids will make their own confetti popper and harmonica noise maker, perfect for New Year’s Eve celebrations!
