Do your kids like engineering and science? We’re not surprised: its super cool to make stuff that actually “does stuff!” Here are 35 fun DIY engineering projects just for kids that you and your family will enjoy. Notice that some are perfect for tiny tots and other projects are terrific for older kids and teens. Use your best judgement and provide adult supervision and guidance when needed.

One of the great things about doing these DIY projects is that kids actually learn how things work – from gravity, physics and other science concepts. It’s not just about creating the DIY – but making it do something – and you can launch the rocket or sail the boat again and again.
