Experience God with Mother Goose Time

Mother Goose Time offers a variety of add-ons to their great preschool curriculum.  You can get Little Goose for toddlers, More Math and Literacy for kids that are ready for more "book learnin'", Dance 'n Beats for physical education/dance, and Experience God for teaching Little Ones about God. 
Little Guy and I were doing a good enough job at blogging about Mother Goose Time that we were offered an add-on kit for free in exchange for more reviewing!  *side note: I always say Little Guy and I because while I do the "work" side of things with the blogging, if it were not for him and his hard work we wouldn't have anything to review!*  I had a hard time choosing between Dance 'n Beats and Experience God, but I found out I was doing a terrible job at his Bible Education when we were talking about what was read and what was not real and he said God wasn't real.  So we had a talk about that, and my decision was made simple! 

*another side note: We were driving to my grandparents' house this week and we passed a church.  I pointed out the cross to Little Guy, and the following conversation occurred -

Me: Who died on the cross?
Little Guy: Jesus.
Me: Why did he die on the cross?
Little Guy: To take away our sins.
Me: I am so happy you know that!!!
Little Guy: Can I have my sins back?
Me: I guess I have not done a good enough job explaining this...

We then discussed the matter a bit more and I explained that sins are bad things we do, and we can't go to heaven if we have them.  I said they are yucky and we don't want them back.  I think he sort of gets it now...*

There is a teacher pack with instructions, activities, prayer ideas, and questions to ask.  Each day is designed to only take about 10 minutes.  It also has instruction on how to use it as a Sunday School curriculum instead of a preschool add-on.

Each day there is an activity to do that helps the children learn the main topic (This month is God Wants Me To Obey) and the applicable story (Moses in the Desert - because Mother Goose Time is the queen of the theme - Our main curriculum topic is Discover the Desert!).  Just like the main curriculum, each month is divided into four parts, each with a different theme. 

moses and the desert story cards
 There is a Bible Story they learn every month, and the story is told on large story cards, with pictures on the front and the words on the back.  You read the story once a week, which should help with retention.
A family newsletter.  There is one for each week, and there is a coloring page on the back.

The kit includes the newsletters and the supplies for all the crafts shown.
 Each month there is a Bible verse to memorize.  Little Guy has a great memory so he memorized it pretty quickly.  HOPEFULLY this video works, but no promises.  I am a video failure most of the time.

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

Manipulatives Monday GIVEAWAY from Mother Goose Time - closed

Giveaway closed! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I really appreciate it!
I have excellent news!  Today is Manipulatives Monday, and Mother Goose Time is giving away a great prize!  One lucky winner will receive TWO bags of manipulatives!  Mother Goose Time will chose the prizes, but I assure you, whatever they send will be a lot of fun for your children!

Manipulatives are a big hit in our house.  Every month we get two new bags of manipulatives, and every month Little Guy asks if he can play with them before the month starts.  The answer is always no, but he tries every month anyways.  During the month we use them for the assigned activities but after we are done with the curriculum, I let him add them to his toy collection.
One thing that is in almost every box is a set of counters.  These are often in the shape of animals, which are Little Guy's favorites.  They are used for a variety of activities, and are always multiple colors, sizes, and/or shapes so they can be …
