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 wise and our memory verse is from James 3:17-18.
But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.
We’ve been having a blast planting seeds this month and today’s activity was definitely no exception. You know, because we’re growing God’s word and all.

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.
I love that this curriculum is so flexible and that we can totally make it work for us. We started with the Little Goose toddler supplement and then switched to Experience God. And now we’ve added More Math + More Literacy too.
Growing God’s Word Bible Story Art for Little Kids
Visual Arts (32.2), Life Science (26.2)
What you’ll need
- Crayons or markers
- Bible verse sign
- Craft stick
- Glue or tape
Here’s how to do it
Ask: How can we grow in God?
- Read Joshua 1:8.
Keep this book of the law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
- Invite children to decorate the outside of their pot.
- Fill the pot with soil. Make a small hole and insert the seed.
- Attach the bible verse sign to the craft stick with glue and place in the pot.
- Read the bible verse and add a small amount of water to the soil.
Explain: Every day we need to take care of the seed and water it so that it can grow. In the same way, we need to pray and talk with Jesus so that his love can grow in our life.
The little guy started off his Growing God’s Word Bible Story Art by painting his pot purple. We use Kwik Stix because they’re really not that messy compared to liquid tempera paints.
When he finished decorating the outside of his pot, he filled it with soil. We still had a little bit left from when we did our Growing Grass Make & Play Activity earlier in the month.
After that, he made a small hole, inserted the seed, and then added more soil to cover it.
I explained to him how to put together his bible verse sign with the craft stick and a piece of washi tape. And he carefully added it to his pot.
And last, but not least, he used a spray bottle to make sure that the soil was damp so the seed would grow.
One of the things that the little guy has learned this month is that “plants need water, sun from up in the sky, and dirt to grow.”
