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.
One of our favorite activities this week was the Pie invitation to create from Mother Goose Time. I’ve always been a big fan of the process art activities, but even more so lately.
We’re finally starting to get into a routine around here. If you missed it, I published a few posts all about it last month including Creating A Daily Routine for Preschool Homeschool and What Our Weeks Look Like. If you haven’t already, make sure you take a few minutes and check them out!
In other news, we have some really exciting stuff happening in the next few weeks. This mama actually sat down and put together a Daily Preschool Checklist. I may or may not have mentioned that it’s time to start getting more intentional. After all, the little guy’s almost three.
It’s so awesome to see just how much the little guy is learning from each and every one. If you and your little kids are interested in your very own Pie invitation to create process art experience, keep reading.
Pie Invitation to Create Process Art Experience
What you’ll need
- Pie Photo
- Play Dough
- Rolling Pins/Tubes
- Small Pie Tins
- Cornstarch Noodles
Here’s how to do it
Set out the inspiration photo, play dough, and rolling pins/tubes and provide each child with a pie tin and cornstarch noodles. I know I say this all the time, but it really is that simple.
Something I’ve noticed in the last few weeks is that the little guy is spending more and more time sorting and counting things.
As I was watching him create with the cornstarch noodles I noticed that he was putting all of the red ones in a pie tin and counting one, two, three, four, five, six… And that was without any prompting from me whatsoever.
I literally put the supplies out in front of him and let him have at it.
That’s one of the things I love so much about Mother Goose Time. The open-ended activities allow the little guy to explore concepts in his own time and on his own terms. As a homeschool mama, I couldn’t ask for more.
