How to kindle your child’s creativity

Activities for National STEM Day

STEM Day Little Guide Detroit on Live in the D

Are you looking for ways to kindle your child’s imagination? Kerry Doman with Little Guide Detroit joined Tati Amare on “Live in the D” to talk about National STEM Day.

National STEM Day shines a light on unique ways to teach kids about science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics.

Doman, a mom dedicated to keeping her kids engaged and entertained while learning, showcased STEM related toys that are fun for the family.

“The toys now are so fun and STEM related, we went to Toyology, they have three locations in metro-Detroit, they are incredible,” said Doman. “They have everything. You can make crystals; you can make your own bath bombs…”

Toyology Toys are in Royal Oak, West Bloomfield, and Bloomfield Hills.

Doman said a popular toy with one of her sons are circuit builders.

“We have this circuit builder, it’s electrical. That’s what he loves to do, he sits there and he builds electrical circuits,” she said.

The Robot Garage located in Birmingham and Rochester Hills offers camps and both in-person and online classes. Doman said her 6-year-old-son enjoys the online learning.

“So, you get a kit in the mail or pick it up, and you follow along on their videos, and you can do it and that’s what he does, he just sits at the kitchen table…,” she said.

Another spot called Kid Chemist, located in Dearborn, offers unique experiences for chemistry lovers.

Some items their offer includes boxes called “Chemistry”, “Moon Landing”, and “Dinosaur Fossil Dig”. Kid Chemist offers classes, birthday party opportunities, and items are available for purchase online.

Doman said the Little Guide Detroit is the largest resource for families in Detroit.

“If you have littles in your life, check us out,” she said.
