Preschoolers are so much fun! Everything is new and exciting, and they are so curious about the world around them. My little guy just turned 3 and he got some pretty fun preschool STEM toys for his birthday that he is totally loving. For his recent birthday, my mom got him this cute little "First Lab Set" and "First Microscope". It was such a hit I gathered up our favorite STEM toys for preschoolers.

Our Favorite STEM Toys for Preschoolers

This first lab set is a great first collection of sturdy science supplies for mixing, exploring, and learning. It comes with three test tubes (with holders), a funnel, dropper, tweezers, beaker, flask, and 10 science activity cards.

My kids love getting hands on with this set. One of the most fun activities for a three year old is color mixing. He loves wearing the goggles and using the dropper to mix colored water in his test tubes.

All the tools in this lab set are sturdy and just the right size for preschool hands. It's a great way to introduce your kids to beginner experiments and ask questions like "What color does red and blue make when you mix them together?" or "Will it sink or float?" This lab set offers easy-to-do experiments to encourage exploring through hands-on fun.

To help foster their curiosity and look closer at the world around them the First Microscope is great for preschoolers.
