The little guy and I have been spending lots of time working on Math + Reasoning Skills. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Mother Goose Time definitely has it all figured out. One of this week’s activities was a preschool Counting Bears activity. What a great way to work on math + reasoning skills for little kids, don’t ya think?
Hello, hello! 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 […]
Sometimes I share an overview of our entire day and other times I stick with one specific activity or project. Today it’s looking like the Hedgehog invitation to create is where it’s at. The little guy seriously loved it. We started with some craft supplies and an inspiration photo of a hedgehog and went from there.
I haven’t shared an entire day of Mother Goose Time lately, so this post is of course a bit overdue. Today was all about Pipes & Plumbers and we definitely had lots of fun learning about both. We started with the Pipe Sculpture activity.
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).
The little guy and I had lots of fun working on an Upcycle Collage invitation to create process art experience, except when it was all said and done, we didn’t end up making a collage after all. Whoa. Wait a sec! You mean, we made something, but didn’t actually make anything? Talk about an oxymoron, right?
We’ve been at home full-time for a few weeks now and we’re right where we should be for the month with Mother Goose Time. Yay! It’s all kinds of awesome to finally be doing things in real time. It used to be that we’d do lots of stuff on the weekends and hardly anything during the week.
There are quite a few things that we can always look forward to from Mother Goose Time. Each month, we get a couple of letter cookie cutters, 2 sets of manipulatives, and a storybook. We also get letter cards for the letter that we’re focusing on for the month. Today, I thought I’d share a few ideas for using some of this stuff.
We’ve been having so much fun with the invitation to create activities from Mother Goose Time. It used to be that we never skipped a tray play activity. These days, we’ve been making a point of doing each and every one of the invitation to create experiences. Yep, they’re that awesome!
If you’ve been following along with what we’ve been up to lately, then you probably already know that we’re at home full-time now. Oh, and the little guy is just about 2 1/2, so I also thought it might be time to switch things up again. Say what? Yep! Soon, the little guy will trade Little Goose for Experience God. Out with the old and in with the new, right?
