The little guy loves to paint and get messy and he especially loves the invitation to create activities that we get each month with our preschool curriculum kit. Of course I love that it gives him opportunities to explore materials and mediums that we might not otherwise have or use.

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.
We did this awesome Campsite invitation to create process art experience this week. It was so much fun!
I set out the inspiration photo and gave the little guy a few different types of paper as well as craft sticks and nature items. I also gave him crayons, markers, and paint sticks. Yep! Lots of art supplies! Lol…
He loves the Kwik Stix, so obviously those were one of the first things that he reached for. Paint sticks and scissors, y’all. That’s kinda how he rolls.
The little guy spent a minute or two brainstorming and then started cutting. I love the invitation to create activities because he can create in his own time and on his own terms. There’s absolutely no pressure to have a so-called final product and he can come and go and add to his project as he chooses.
He cut the red paper into smaller pieces and glued it to the background paper. It’s crazy to think how much his fine motor skills have improved since we started doing process art activities a few times each week.
After he finished gluing everything together, he decided to add a little more color.
It’s so cool to see the little guy having a blast making stuff, Just like his mama, right? Seriously, though. I get an extra set of supplies each month, so that I can sit down and do the process art activities too. Lol…
Don’t forget to check back next week to see what we’re up to with our new Camping theme. And if you missed it, check out our preschool space post.
