I mentioned not too long ago that we were waiting for lots of fun stuff to show up for a certain little someone. Obviously more stuff means more organizing… How could it not, right? So I thought it’d be fun to share pictures of the little guy’s updated preschool homeschool space. Hard to believe that I can call him a preschooler now. Wow! Time definitely goes by too quickly.

A huge thanks to Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) for providing us with their Experience Preschool curriculum for free in exchange for sharing our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. It’s been such a huge blessing to us! As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own.
Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids.
To make a long story short, we bought Timberdoodle Preschool + Sonlight P 3/4 and then I found out that we got accepted as blog ambassadors for Mother Goose Time, which basically means that we receive the Mother Goose Time preschool curriculum each month in exchange for our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences with it. These days, we’re doing an eclectic mix of all three. Not surprising, right? It’s actually been really awesome and it’s totally working for us right now.
My plan was to eventually share a detailed post talking about each of these preschool programs and exactly what we love about them. In the meantime, suffice it to say that we’re head over heels for everything we’ve done thus far. For more details, of course check back. I promise a lot more about what we’re up to sometime really soon.
A few weeks ago, I stumbled across this awesome rag rug and thought it’d be perfect for the little guy to work on, so it of course came home with us. For the price, it was more than worth it. I also may or may not have mentioned that I brought our rocking chair downstairs. We read together a lot more now.
And that cute little cart that I’m fairly certain every homeschooler on the planet owns? Yep, we’ve got two now. They were on sale at Michael’s, so I grabbed another one. We have all of our Mother Goose Time stuff organized in one and lots of the little guy’s art supplies in the other.
Our Montessori-inspired shelves have more or less stayed the same. For what it’s worth, this system is awesome for us. The little guy can easily get things out and put them away on his own. And even when I rearrange, he still somehow seems to know exactly where things go.
I grabbed these cute little galvanized pails from the Target $1 spot. What can I say? Simple pleasures in life. They keep all of his pencils, markers, glue, and paint brushes organized. Sometimes, they’re on his table and sometimes they’re on mine, but whatever works.
And this table that we got from Ikea? It’s awesome! It was only $24.99 and I can’t even begin to wrap my head around the fact that it’s holding up as well as it is. It’s absolutely crazy how much toddler abuse this thing takes on a day-to-day basis.
The Ikea Kallax is another thing that I think just about everyone has at least one of. We use it to organize all of our books as well as our quick & easy rainbow sensory bins. The little guy is obsessed with them. He thinks they’re the best thing in the world. We almost always have a sensory activity of some sort set up in the studio.
And then there was this project that was put together by my husband. Isn’t it adorable? We have lots of different magnetic stuff that we can rotate, so… Of course the gears. And we also have jumbo magnetic letters, Magnetic Poetry Really Big Words, and a few other things.
Don’t forget to stop by next week if you’re interested in seeing what we’re up to with preschool homeschool!
