Early Learning Take and Makes

Take and Makes are easy-to-use STEAM activities that families can do together. STEAM activities incorporate science, technology, engineering, arts, and/or math. Take and Make activities connect early learning to South Dakota State Standards for Kindergarten, and they include a family engagement component. They are made with readily-available, household items and are packaged for families to take home and do together.  Here are some other ways you can use these activities:

  • Put together Take and Make kits for prizes at area festivals
  • Choose one of the Take and Makes and use it at your booth to attract families and share kindergarten readiness skills
  • Have the activity on display for families to interact with and send home the assembled activity with your organization’s information
  • Challenge families to go classroom-to-classroom to collect Take and Makes and explore the school
