Learn about nursery rhymes with this easy Pie Invitation to Create Process Art Experience. Use a variety of supplies while practicing fine motor skills and making art with your toddlers and preschoolers.
Today’s topic was Sing a Song of Sixpence and this Pie Invitation to Create Process Art Experience was definitely a huge hit around here!
Nursery rhymes are full of patterns, sequencing, numbers and counting. They help children become curious about math at an early age. Children can begin to learn simple math skills while reciting nursery rhymes.
This was one of the little guy’s favorite activities the first time around. If you’re interested, check out our Baked in a Pie Invitation to Create Process Art Experience from a few years ago. It also marked a huge milestone for him because we did this particular activity right around when he developed an interest in counting.

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.
This month we were thrilled to receive one of the Little Goose Toddler Teacher Guidebooks too!

- Did the child plan out his pie design before making it?
- What did he discuss as he was creating his pie design?
I’ve shared my thoughts on the process art activities that are included in our preschool curriculum kits over and over again. It’s crazy to think that both my toddler and my kindergartner are head over heels in love with them. These kiddos are over four years apart in age. Talk about versatile!
Watching the little guy and baby girl work together to create pie art was wonderful. Once she realized what he was doing, she started handing him cornstarch noodles and of course he spent some time helping her to make pie crust using the paper.
Obviously his fine motor skills are much more developed than hers, but she tries so hard to be just like her big brother. Either way, these two had a great time together and that’s more important than just about anything else.
Every month on “box day” the little guy and I sit down together to look through each week’s Teacher Guide. Throughout the years, I’ve noticed that he tends to gravitate toward the invitation to create and investigation station activities. What can I say? He’s just like his mama.
