Lessons From Anansi

It's our last week with out Fables & Folktales box from Experience Early Learning, and I am really sad about it! We had so much fun learning through stories from Aesop, like The Crow and the Pitcher and The Ants and the Grasshopper, and ventured with Paul Bunyan as we learned about American Tall Tales. This week we have been exploring international folktales, and some of my kids most...

Preschool Narration and Other Fun Activities

We have dove into our Water Adventure week from Experience Early Learning, and on a rainy day here in East Texas, we enjoyed some water themed activities even when we were cooped up indoors. Our day started with us looking at the theme poster and me asking "What can you see in the water?" The kids were quick to respond with Koi fish. We stand and observe them often when we go to the zoo. I asked...

Seed Mosaic

Have you ever created a mosaic? A mosaic is a picture or pattern produced by arranging together small colored pieces of hard material, such as stone, tile, glass... or even SEEDS. As a former art teacher, mosaics are pretty simple to do, require just a few materials and always end up a success in my opinion.

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...

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...
