Watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a little bit custom in my home similar to it’s in hundreds of thousands of different houses in america. For the previous few years Macy’s has provided some hands-on STEAM classes associated to the parade.

The 4 actions embody inflating balloons via the usage of baking soda and vinegar, designing balloons for the parade, making and utilizing sculping dough, and constructing mannequin floats. All the movies embody lists of wanted provides. 

I like all 4 of the actions. If I used to be to advocate one for Thanksgiving day it might be constructing mannequin floats or designing as a result of they are often executed with cardboard, paper, glue, markers, and different frequent family supplies that do not make a large number and do not need to be executed in a kitchen. That stated, I feel essentially the most enjoyable one is the inflating balloons exercise.
