The Mattapan Branch will be posting Summer Reading STEAM Challenges every week for kids ages 0-12 and their families! Kids will use their creativity to complete challenges that related to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. There are countless ways to complete the challenges, so families with children of all ages can participate. Check the Mattapan Branch Facebook page every Monday at 10AM, from June 1-August 3 for a new challenge: https://www.facebook.com/bplmattapan/.
This week's Summer Reading STEAM Challenge is to play with bubbles! If you already have bubbles and bubble wands or blowers at home, great! You can teach kids about air using your bubbles or even have a contest to see who can make the biggest bubbles. If not, you can learn how to make your own bubbles and bubble wands with items you have at home! Use this easy bubble solution recipe: https://livingwellmom.com/homemade-bubble-solution/, and these instructions for DIY bubble wands: https://www.onecrazymom.com/easy-diy-bubble-wands/.
If you'd like to share photos of your bubble fun on the Mattapan Branch Facebook page, please email them to Children's Librarian Amy: email@example.com.
