The little guy and I had an awesome first week of Baby Animals w/ Mother Goose Time. And of course one of our favorite activities was the Seahorse Invitation to Create. I’m sure that doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone who’s been following along with us for a while. We definitely love process art around here.
The little guy has been really lovin’ the math stuff that comes in our Mother Goose Time curriculum kits lately, so I thought it might be all kinds of awesome to put together a math workbox for him. As much as I’d love to be able to set up so-called centers, we just don’t have the space, so… This is of course the next best thing.
I spent lots of time brainstorming anything and everything you could possibly imagine about putting together an art space for little kids. We’re not even going to get into how many hours I spent on Pinterest in the process, but I digress. Yep, I definitely wanted to. Heck, maybe I needed to. After all, what little kid wouldn’t totally love having an art space of their own?
The little guy and I were at Michael’s last night and we stumbled across a package of mini Christmas ornaments for just a few dollars. At first, I was kind of like really? And then it occurred to me that we could put together a quick + easy $5 Christmas sensory activity. Keep reading to find…
One of our favorite activities this week was the Robot Tinkering invitation to create. The new process art experiences from Mother Goose Time always exceed my expectations and this one was definitely no exception. The skills listed for this activity were Shapes (16.2) and Logic (20.1).
