STEAM: Color Mixing Learning with Tie-Dye

About a month ago our Children's Ministry hosted a tie-dye party for kids from Kindergarten- 6th grade. It was my first tie-dying experience. I loved watching them create, but I learned a thing or two watching them. 1. Limit the color choices. There were quite a few muddy brown looking shirts because kids got too happy with using ALL the colors. 2. Use the rubber bands and only place dye in a...

STEAM: Shadows, Shapes, and Sense of Sight

What a gift of God SIGHT is! Have you ever wondered how it is that our brains actually process light rays to be able to see color?! It's fascinating and the more I see the intricacies in how things work, the more I see an amazing Creator God at the helm of all things. Exploring the 5 senses with children is always fun (check out this post) and even more so when you can get outdoors! We've been...

Homeschool Classroom Set-up

Maybe it's the teacher in me, but I've always loved setting up my classroom. Even when it was in the kitchen/ breakfast room, I just loved seeing our space come together.

All opinions and thoughts are...

STEAM: Skeletal Study

I have 2 little learners... a recently turned 6 year old and a 2.5 year old. I have always been terrified of studying human anatomy. Probably because I can't remember ever really studying it before the dreaded 5th grade health class. Yall know what I'm talkin' about. So, finding fun ways to teach about the human body to my little ones is something that is new for me too, but it has been so...

STEAM: Brain Study with Little Learners

Have you ever sat back and just wondered at the marval of the human body? When I look at my kids and I think about how much they have grown from the moment I felt their first kick to today, I can only see how amazing our Creator God is. Psalm 139: 13-16 are so true. Our body is made in His image (Genesis 1:26-27) and being able to study it, allows us to see Him as well. I am praying that as we...

Earthly Superheroes

"I are a superhero!' my two-year old son hollers after completing any helpful task. It is one of my most favorite things he says. I know this saying has everything to do with the fact that we have been studying superheroes with our Experience Early Learning box. As an Experience Early Learning (EEL) Blogger, I receive the EEL Preschool Curriculum in exchange for my honest opinions and...

Superhero Symbols

This post contains affiliate links. The other week, I had 3 extra kiddos at my house and I needed some activities for them to do. It's about 100 degrees down here in Texas and with the heat index and humidity, you can only be outside for a little while. Our Superhero box from Experience Early Learning had just come in and I was anxious to start it. I pulled out the Teacher Guides and first bag...

Everyday Superhero: Firefighter Puppets

When you think of a superhero, do you usually think of all the costume gear they wear, or their super power? Or do you think of those people out there that are willing to sacrifice their own well being for others?

Invitation to Create: Blow Painting

Superheroes can have all sorts of superpowers. Some can fly, or be invisible, have X-ray vision- or even super power breath.... just hope and pray they brushed first, lol! We are learning all about Superheroes this month with our Experience Early Learning summer box and it has been so much fun! The kids have loved getting dressed up, running around and dancing to the music from the CD, and our...
