The little guy and I are definitely loving the new Weather All Around Us theme for October. This week, we made Glitter Snow Dough, Rainbow Ice, and even a Cloud in A Jar as we learned about different types of weather.

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.
Our favorite activity was of course the Cloudy Art Invitation to Create. You know, because process art is kinda our thing. The little guy loves open-ended projects and I love that they encourage creative thinking and problem-solving skills.
We seriously couldn’t live without the art and science activities from Mother Goose Time each month. They’re definitely a huge part of what makes this curriculum so much fun. Obviously, the manipulatives and magnetic story pieces are on that list too, but… I digress.
We used blue and white paint and diluted it so that we had a few different consistencies to work with. I gave him pipettes to use while he was making his Cloudy Art. And guess what? Exploring new supplies makes everything a lot more interesting. But you already knew that, right?
He also spent some time pouring paint onto his project. Whatever works, though. He had a blast with it. There’s something about little kids and eye droppers. I’m not sure what that something is, but…
Either way, I couldn’t be happier. The little guy asks for school every day, including weekends. Thankfully, we get Experience God too, so… There’s definitely no shortage of Mother Goose Time activities around here.
