This month’s theme is Weather & Seasons and the little guy and I applied what we’ve been learning about Physics to make some really awesome wind art.

Wind is air that can move things. We can create wind with our breath by blowing out air. We can’t see wind, but we can feel it. Wind can be strong or gentle.

I’ve probably mentioned this before, but the little guy loves physics. It’s definitely one of his favorite subjects. So today we talked about the wind and how it moves things around as well as learning a little bit about forces and motion.

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.

I love that the activities from Experience Early Learning are so incredibly versatile and that I can totally use the process art experiences to introduce complex science topics to my first grader.

And actually, what I love most about homeschooling is that more often than not we’re exploring everyday life through hands-on experiences. After all, little kids learn best through play.
