Here are some STEM activities that can be done indoors during winter:
Creating Snowflake Crystals: You'll need borax, pipe cleaners, and a jar. Form a snowflake shape with the pipe cleaner, mix borax with boiling water, hang the snowflake in the jar with the solution, and leave it overnight. By morning, you'll have a crystal snowflake!
Building an Indoor Weather Station: Use a simple thermometer to measure temperature, an empty bottle and a ruler to measure rainfall, and a ribbon to observe the direction of the wind
Winter Star Gazing: Find a star chart online and see how many constellations you can spot from your window.
Ice and Salt Experiments: See how salt can make ice melt faster by placing salt on different ice cubes and observing what happens.
Indoor Gardening Projects: Plant a seed in a cup, water it regularly, and observe how it grows.
