It’s that time of the month again. We’re sharing what we’ve been up to with Experience God. This month, we’re learning about how God is just and talking about Adam and Eve. This month’s memory verse is from Revelation 15:3.
Great and marvelous are your deeds, Lord God Almighty. Just and true are your ways, King of the ages.
This was definitely the little guy’s favorite activity this month. And you know what? It sorta ended up taking on a life of its own. I love when that happens and if you’re a homeschool mama, I’m sure you do too.
After all, what’s not to love about watching little kids being creative? This is one of my favorite age groups. You know, the wonder of everyday things and exploring the world around them. I wouldn’t trade this time for anything.

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.
This curriculum is all kinds of awesome and I love how it’s organized. You can totally make it work for you. Each week includes lots of quick & easy activities to help you make the most of your preschool homeschool experience.
The little guy spent quite a bit of time creating with just the sand, spoons, and spray bottle. After a while, we added a few drops of liquid watercolor. And after some more exploring, we added a different color too.
Fine Motor (5.1), Visual Arts (32.2)
What you’ll need
- Sand or Dirt
- Spray Bottle w/ Water
Here’s how to do it
Ask: What can you make out of dust or sand?
- Read Genesis 2:7. “The Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.”
- Set out a tray filled with sand or dirt. Also put out spoons and a spray bottle.
- Encourage children to explore the sand and try to create something.
- Discuss if it is hard or easy to build with sand.
Explain: God is a great artist and used the dust to create Adam.
I love that all of these activities totally keep the little guy’s attention. And of course it’s great for when this mama needs to get a few minutes of work done. I set things up and let him have at it.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. He knows the rules when it comes to sensory activities and art projects. Everything stays in the bin or on the tray. I mean, don’t get me wrong. There are occasionally accidents, but… win some, lose some.
