We started our Friends & Feelings curriculum kit this week and one of our favorite activities was this awesome My Reflection Investigation Station.
Of course we’ve talked about how we can see ourselves in a mirror and learned that what we’re seeing is actually called a reflection, but it was kinda cool to explore mirrors and reflections in a completely different way.

If you’ve been around for a while, then you already know that we’re using Mother Goose Time for preschool homeschool and it’s been such a huge blessing to us.
Scientific Reasoning (25.2), Fine Motor (5.1)
- Put a mirror on the table. Place a variety of items (shells, buttons, gems, nature items, etc.) on the mirror.
- Encourage children to arrange the loose parts on the mirror. Place child-friendly tweezers on the mirror if desired.
- What are you putting on the mirror? How does it look?
- What happens when you look in the mirror?
- Can you see the reflections of the items?
- What happens if you take the mirror outside?
The little guy was totally intrigued by this activity. I had bought this little mirror last homeschool year and we used it as a canvas for a liquid watercolors as well as a background for pretend play.
And not that I’m surprised, but he had a blast using it to learn about reflections today.
I would’ve never thought to use nature items with this particular investigation station, but it was definitely the perfect way to pull it all together.
I’m so thankful to be starting another awesome preschool homeschool year with Mother Goose Time and can’t wait to share our experiences each week. The little guy and I are both in love with this curriculum and it’s definitely become a huge part of our everyday lives
