glo bath with glo stick cheap and lights up the bath enough to not have to use a light

my daughter loves to try to help me clean, at times this is nice. So i made it a game and put a box on the floor with tape and let her sweep everything into that box. She was really proud of herself when done.

(my own picture and idea )
good night bath, also had bath books and made it a lavender bubble bath

Whale Water Scoop
What you'll need
Clean plastic gallon milk jug
Permanent marker
Scissors
How to make it
Turn the gallon jug onto its side so that the handle is at the top. With the marker, draw a mouth shape on the base of the jug, extending partway up the sides.

Cut along the lines with scissors, creating a wide-mouthed scoop (a parent's job).

Using the marker, outline the edge of the mouth and add eyes and a blowhole.

Or just make it a chore jar. If a kid wants something write a amount with each chore and once done the chore Ur kid gets that amount of money. Let them keep doing chores till they have saved enough up to get what they are wanting.

put little toys in soap bottle once soap bottle is empty then ur kid may have the toy fun way to teach to wash hands can also put baribe stuff for girls or anything else that will fit

Buy some glycerin soap at a craft store. Melt it in the microwave, add food coloring, and pour into a mold. I used an ice cube tray. You can also add essential oils if you go for scents, though I find that a bit unnecessary for bath crayons. Takes about an hour to cool completely, then pop out of the mold and you have crayons!

Valentines day sensory bin for all ages!

Sensory bins are something you can really make for any age and to fit into any budget. Mine was made for my own kids (ages 6&7) and made from items bought at my local dollar store. A sensory bin is a bin that engages some if not all of the 5 senses. Mine did not include scent or taste but was followed up by Valentines day candy as a treat. Now that my kids are no longer toddlers but still love these bins I try to include things I can use later on for different crafts or decorating. So for this bin I added heart shaped buckets, shredded paper, stickers, necklaces, Valentines day clothes pins, and a heart shaped bell door hanger. Recently I have noticed my kids enjoy adding other toys to play time and I love that. Seeing what they come up with and hearing the stories change as they grow is pretty neat to see. Anyway I hope this inspires you to try a sensory bin out with your baby/toddler/or child, and have a good rest of your morning, evening or night! Bye!
Side note~ Sadly I have …

One way I keep my kids learning over the summer break!

We all know that summer can be one time our kids can lose what they learn during the school year. We get told this over and over every year and it is very true. So every summer we try to fit in as much learning as we can(while still having fun). This year we are trying spring/summer journals. As much as possible we  take walks and every time the kids see something they find interesting they either write about it and/or draw a picture to go with it. This way we are keeping up with new vocabulary and learning about many different things.
So yeah, this is the new thing we are adding this summer to help keep my kids learning! So far it has been a big hit, lets hope it stays that way. :)



Have a good rest of your morning, evening, or night! Bye guys!~
