As a Mother Goose Time blog ambassador, I receive the Mother Goose Time Preschool curriculum in exchange for my honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own. Keep in mind that all toddlers 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.
Guess what, y’all! We’re just about done with our Birds + Eggs theme from Mother Goose Time. Next month, it’s all about bugs! Can’t wait! The little guy and I ordered caterpillars, so they’ll hopefully be here next week. Just in time to get started, right? Lol…
Today, we’re sharing this awesome Bird Feet invitation to create process art experience. This was such a cool activity! The little guy had a friend over and of course they both had a blast with it.
Bird Feet Invitation to Create Process Art Experience
What you’ll need
- Bird Feet Photo
- Wax Sticks
Here’s how to do it
Each invitation to create activity includes prompts. And of course they’re a great way to encourage language + literacy as well as logic and problem-solving skills.
This particular activity focused on just that. The skills listed were Logic 20.1 and Communication 8.1, 8.2.
As a homeschool mama, I love that each activity includes at least a few skills. This curriculum obviously packs a lot of punch. You get what you pay for and then some.
While the little guy and I are creating our bird feet, we’re also working on communicating ideas and speaking in sentences, which are both really important skills for little kids.
We’re talking about the colors and textures of the supplies that we’re using along with what he’s doing and why. The Mother Goose Time Teacher Guide gives you lots of ideas.
And we’re obviously being silly too. You know, because tape doesn’t exactly belong on our noses… Or does it? Lol…
- What type of bird feet would you like to have?
- Set the inspiration photo, wax sticks, cellophane, toothpicks and other supplies in the center of the table.
- Which type of bird feet would you like to make?
- What do the feet in the photo look like they can do well (run, swim, grasp, etc.)?
- Will you create claws or talons by bending the wax sticks?
- How can you use the cellophane and toothpicks to make webbed feet?
- Did the child consider how the bird would move when creating the bird feet sculpture?
- What other problem solving strategies did he use?
Mother Goose Time has definitely thought of everything and I couldn’t ask for more.
