If you’re a parent, I’m sure you’ve heard the term “STEM” used all over the place lately, especially when talking about education. STEM is an acronym and stands for Science Technology, Engineering and Math. Many school districts and private schools have already began implementing curriculum and activities in schools that integrate these very necessary subjects into fields of study. Very important to remember is that STEM isn’t aimed at just one gender but rather, includes and encourages both genders.This holiday season, why not consider giving STEM toys from Educational Insights as gifts to the child(ren) on your list? Educational Insights has so many great ones, designed for all different ages, that’ll make Merry and Bright gifts. Here are just 3 of the many great reasons to do so:
STEM gifts help better prepare a child for subject matter in school by providing them with the building blocks to succeed in science, technology, engineering, and math.

STEM gifts are perfect for fostering playtime for both parents and children.

What do you do when you’re in the middle of the holiday season and you still have people left to buy for, but have no idea what to get them? For me, sometimes the hardest people to buy for are family members who live far away, specifically kids. With extended families living further apart and seeing each other less these days, holiday gift buying has become way more stressful. There’s nothing worse than giving a gift you know someone won’t like. Yes, we should all be grateful for what we receive but as a working adult, I don’t want to .spend my hard-earned money on gifts that others won’t really use. Can you relate?
