Are you planning a new theme and looking for lots of fun preschool safari activities? Check out this cool migration process art experience for little kids! Make a mosaic that looks like a herd of animals!
Another new week and lots of fun safari activities to try out! We’re still working through Life in the Grasslands and today we talked about Migration.
The great migration is when 1.5 million wildebeests and other animals walk from Tanzania to Kenya. They travel across dangerous rivers and plains.
One of my favorite things about our curriculum is all of the wonderful invitation to create ideas that are included in each month’s Teacher Guide. And of course, today’s activity was no exception.
We used mosaic squares to create migration process art and the little guy couldn’t get enough. We still have a little glass dish on his workspace with what’s left of them and he’s using a few here and there on his projects.

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.
Preschool Safari Activities Migration Invitation to Create Process Art Experience
What you’ll need
- Inspiration Photo
- Mosaic Squares
Here’s how to do it
- Set out the Inspiration Photo and additional materials.
- What do you notice about the migration photo? What animals do you recognize?
- How can you use the mosaic squares to look like a herd of animals?
- What other places could you draw on your picture? Water? Hills? Trees?
- Could the child pick up and glue the individual squares onto the paper?
- What types of places did he represent on his art?
This was so quick and easy. I gave the little guy mosaic squares, paper, markers, glue, and scissors. Just like most of the other invitation to create activities, this one was kinda intuitive.
I love process art. It gives little kids the opportunity to not only make stuff, but also to develop both their critical thinking and problem solving skills.
Can your little kids make something from practically nothing? The things that he’s created with everyday supplies never cease to amaze me. Paper plates. Craft sticks. Basically, just stuff that we have lying around the house.
And you know what? The little guy takes those things and makes his own little masterpieces with them. We’re definitely loving all of the amazing ideas that we’ve been getting from our preschool curriculum kits!
