Galaxy Salt Painting

"Momma, can we learn about galaxies?" I pulled out our Galaxy bag from our Space & Sky Experience Preschool box, rummaged though my books from both the library and my own shelves, and we were ready to learn! I love how easy I can flow to their learning desires. As an Experience Early Learning (EEL) Blogger, I receive the EEL Preschool Curriculum in exchange for my honest opinions and...

Map and Globe Activities

Grab those passports and maps because we are about to set off for a Global Adventure with this month's Experience Early Learning box! This week was all about travel tools such as suitcases, cameras, currency, and of course maps. You can't have a global adventure if you don't know where you are going!

Wind Process Art

I write a lot about Process Art also known as Invitations to Create. There are so many benefits to process art, but one of my favorites is that the child is truly creating something of their own that is unlike any other.

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...

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...

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...

Building Sandcastles without Sand

This post contains affiliate links. How can you build sandcastles without sand? Is it really a Sandcastle? Well, you read through this post, and you tell me. :) This month our learning has centered around Islands thanks to our monthly box from Experience Early Learning. We had a great time playing pirates, which you can read about here, exploring volcanoes, and wondering about the wind. Today we...

Exploring Nature: Slugs

“Never be within doors when you can rightly be without.”-Charlotte Mason (Vol 1: Home Education) Our spring weather has been absolutely glorious down here in East Texas. So whenever I can, and however I can, we take our learning outdoors. Since our Experience Early Learning box (EEL) has been all about BUGS, it has lent itself well this past month to learn outdoors. I grabbed our Big Book of...
