As a Mother Goose Time blog ambassador, I receive the Mother Goose Time Preschool curriculum in exchange for my honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own. Keep in mind that all toddlers 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 were so excited to get started with our Down on the Farm theme from Mother Goose Time. Yep! My little goose was definitely ready to go.
And I totally love the expression on his face. Talk about priceless.
One of the little guy’s favorite things is of course the two sets of manipulatives that come with each month’s curriculum kit. This month was no exception.
We spent some time sorting cows, making chickens, and engineering barns. Not necessarily in that order, of course.
These cows are awesome because they can be sorted by both color and size, which encourages early math & reasoning skills. And of course the snap-together sticks are great for exploring engineering concepts.
He was all about trying his hand at building with them.
When we were finished checking out our new stuff, we got to work on today’s invitation to create. Love these! He does too.
And yep! We decided to paint ourselves. Whatever works, right? He’s washable.
I’m all about the changes to the Mother Goose Time curriculum for this school year. The more open-ended art experiences, the better. Giving little kids supplies and letting them do their own thing is a great way to inspire them to be creative.
The little guy loves making stuff and this project was no exception. When we were finished with our process art, we decided to spend some time outside.
Yay for the little guy’s brand-spankin’-new bike. I honestly don’t think he’s ever wanted anything as badly as he did this. We found on a Toys R Us and he literally rode it through the entire store.
I came home that night, found one on Amazon for an awesome price, and ordered it for him. He waited patiently for almost a week.
And the entire time we were putting it together, he was pointing and saying “my bike. my pedals. my seat.” Yep, little guy. All yours.
