Glow Stuff
glow water #1
just add some neon paint to water and mix good (need a black light for this)

glow water! #2
Cut a not toxic highlight in half (or take the back off) take out the felt and either let it sit in water for couple hours or squeeze the ink out in the water(that's what i did) go in a dark room and turn on a black light(black light is needed for this!) i also gave my daughter other bowls and cups and things to play with this

neon ice cube paint
i froze in a ice cube tray neon paint and some water then i put my daughters glow stars(we got at the dollar store) once it was all frozen I took them out and my daughter painted the bathtub and walls. The stars made it very much easier to get the cubs out and sense this is neon paint you need a black light for this one.


Glow writting
under a black light let Ur kid/kids draw with a highlighter. Simple and fun!

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!~

Spring dollar sensory bin/easy cheap sensory play

Spring is here finally! We are so ready for the warmer weather! To celebrate the start of spring I decided a nice sensory bin was a good idea. So off to the local dollar store I went to see what they would have. Dollar stores are a great place to find cheap ideas for play. 
They had a whole selection of fairies and gnomes and many accessories. This was the tray I put together for my kids but my kids are older and I know they wont eat any of this. If you have younger kids or toddlers  I suggest looking around to find more age appropriate items. I also look for items that will not just sit around or go to waste. These little figures will go in a play bin for not only my kids to enjoy threw the spring/summer but for my neighborhood kids to enjoy also. The only thing I wish I would have added to this tray was water. We covered the sense of touch here in many ways and water would have been a great add on. Anyway this was my kids bin but you can make many different bins from dollar stores …
