My daughter just turned four, which means she is at the “preschool” stage. Like many kids, she loves hands-on learning. So preschool science activities are something she gets excited about. And my 2 year old wants to do whatever his sister is doing. Lakeshore Learning has a wonderful inventory of educational toys that are fun for kids while teaching them important skills.

We received the STEM Sink or Float Science Station to try out. The kit teaches kids about, well, things that sink and float. Kids can experiment to see what will make the boat sink. The set also comes with guide cards for discussion to encourage the child to think and observe.

It’s a good thing 2 boats are included with the kit, because both kids wanted one. I happened to have 2 small plastic tubs the same size and gave them each filled halfway with water. There was a towel placed underneath for protection!

Sink or Float Kit

The kids were really just fascinated with the sea creatures and frogs. And the pretty rocks. My youngest was really most interested in seeing how many objects he could put in the water. K was a little more methodical, though.


The Sink or Float Science Station is one of 3 science stations offered by STEM. The others teach about magnets and motion. You can get the set and have a complete preschool science center.

Lakeshore Learning has long been known for quality education materials for teachers and now their Winter Indoor Fun collection is made to get kids excited about learning. And you can get 20% off your purchase with this coupon.

  1. I like the idea a lot of children learning through “hands-on” activities. I particularly like The Sink or Swim because kids always tend to love water play. What a fun way to learn. Lakeshore Learning and a dedicated parent makes for a successful experience in fun and learning.

  2. They look like they were having fun! I love these types of games for kids, especially when it comes to science. Too many video games, online games, and computer use nowadays.

  3. I think these are awesome! My grandson is so interested in scientific things, even though he doesn’t know it is science. I’ll have to see if my local independent toy store carries them!
