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 asks us to seek him and our memory verse is from Luke 12:34.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
It’s kinda hilarious to me how much the little guy loves messy art projects. I’m all like do you want to make something with feathers and glue and the little guy says, “That sounds like so much fun!”
It’s seriously cute. Last month was kinda the same thing, except it was the God’s Gift to Us Creative Bible Story Art with 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.
Mother Goose Time definitely knows little kids. From the awesome themes to the fun activities that we both look forward to, there’s never any disappointment. This curriculum is such a huge blessing for us and we totally couldn’t live without it. I mean, it’s been almost two years of getting a little yellow school bus box every month.
Can you even wrap your head around that? The little guy is about to turn four. We started Mother Goose Time on his second birthday. Literally. I opened our very first preschool curriculum kit (It was A to Zoo Animals, by the way. That theme will always have a special place in my heart.) that Monday after we had finished celebrating his birthday.
He thought that preschool was tons of fun that day and obviously some things never change. That’s especially true when you’re working with a company as wonderful as this one.
If you’re interested in making one of these fun, colorful birds with your little kids, then definitely keep reading.
Look at the Bird
Visual Art (32.2), Fine Motor (5.1)
What you’ll need
- Colored Paper
- Wiggle Eyes
- Yellow Paper
Ask: What do you think a bird needs to stay strong? What do you need to be strong?
Here’s how to do it
- Just as God provides food for the birds, he provides food for us.
- We need to eat to stay physically strong and healthy. We need to read the Bible and pray to stay spiritually strong and healthy.
- Fold the circle in half with the bible verse inside. If you’re trying this at home without a kit, cut out a large circle from a piece of color cardstock and write the following verse from Matthew 6:26 inside.
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns,
and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?
- Decorate the half-circle with feathers and wiggle eyes to make it looks like a bird.
- Use the yellow paper for the beak and other decorations.
- Open up the bird to read the bible verse inside.
Explain: God feeds our bodies and our hearts so that we are strong like him.
Of course the little guy loved the feathers and the glue. Going into an activity like this, I can always kind of anticipate what he’ll be into and what he wont. Like I’ve said before, he’s all about anything and everything messy at this point.
If it were up to him, he’d paint himself on a daily basis. I mean, seriously. Who needs paper, right? After all, it’s not exactly a necessity. Lol…
