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 love and our memory verse is from John 3:16.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
It’s always seems like the messiest activity from Experience God is the one that the little guy enjoys the most. Why am I not surprised? Last month, it was the Dust Creations Activity with sand and water. And of course this month, he’s all about the cornstarch noodles.

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.

God’s Gift to Us
Visual Arts (32.1)
What you’ll need
- Gift box
- Cornstarch Noodles
- Damp Cloth
Ask: What gifts does God give us?
Here’s how to do it
- God’s greatest gift to us is his son Jesus. Jesus gave us his life and died on the cross so that we could live with God in eternity.
- Assemble a gift box for each child and fill it with the cornstarch noodles. Give each child a gift.
- Invite children to press the end of the noodle on the damp cloth and stick it to another one to build a cross.
- Read the bible verse from Romans 5:8.
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Explain: God is love and he gave his one and only son to us that we could be with him forever.
The little guy had a blast making his colorful cross from cornstarch noodles. I’m sure this is one of those activities that we’ll come back to sometime soon. It was quick + easy and that makes this homeschool mama all kids of happy.
So many fun activities. So little time. I’m sure y’all can relate. I totally wish that we could do them all, but we can’t. What we do is pick and choose the activities that work for us. And in reality, that’s the best thing about this curriculum. It’s so easy to do exactly that.
