Hello friends! We wrapped up our At the Pond theme not too long ago, but before we did, we spent some time making these awesome Paper Plate Lily Pads w/ Coffee Filter Water Lilies. This was probably the little guy’s favorite because he got the opportunity to use some of mama’s art supplies. You know, […]
Hello friends! Sometimes, we like quick and easy activities like this Life at the Pond Invitation to Play that I shared a few days ago and other times we go all out. Today we put together this awesome sensory bin, which includes tadpoles and frogs, duck counters, a pond plant or two, and even rocks […]
Hello, hello! We’ve done so many fun pond-themed activities in the last month and I still have a few to share. This one was definitely a favorite and of course it was quick + easy too. Pretend play is so important to help little kids learn about themselves and the world around them. It’s also […]
Hello, hello! We have a few more pond-themed activities to share and this one was definitely my favorite. We talked about submerged pond plants a few weeks ago and I was totally drawing a blank as far as what we could use to make our own. After thinking about it for a quite a while, […]
We’re just finishing up our At the Pond theme and I found this awesome Safari Ltd. Life Cycle of a Frog that I just had to have. No surprise there, right? This mama loves shopping, especially for educational stuff. Lol… I grabbed some Shimmering Blue Sapphire Kinetic Sand that we had and of course the Safari Ltd. Life Cycle of a Frog and put both on a tray for the little guy.
We’ve had such an awesome few weeks learning about life at the pond with Mother Goose Time. April is all about birds + eggs and we’re just about ready to get started with it. In the meantime though, I thought it’d be fun to share one of our favorite activities from this month. This Pond invitation to create process art experience is too cool.
If you’ve been around for a while, you’ve probably noticed the fine print at the top of each and every one of our Mother Goose Time posts. Little kids do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. One of the reasons it’s there is to remind y’all that every toddler and preschooler is unique.
The little guy and I are still working our way through At the Pond w/ Mother Goose Time and we’re lovin’ it. This is one of the best themes yet. I think I say that every month, though. Lol… Today, we did the Snake invitation to create, which was a process art experience that focused on both fine motor (5.1) and visual arts (32.2) skills.
We’ve had so much fun with our At the Pond theme already this month. Mother Goose Time is definitely a favorite around here. Today, it’s all about turtles. We read Turtle Splash and spent some time exploring our brand-spankin’-new manipulatives.
A new month means a brand-spankin’-new theme. And this time around it’s all about life at the pond. I’m so excited. I did a similar theme when I was teaching in the toddler room a while back, but I had to plan everything by myself. Actually, we even read a few of the same books that we’ll be reading again this month. Seriously, though. I spent hours on Pinterest.
