Make your own paper

1. Tear up all your left over paper into fine pieces.

2. Put all your pieces of paper in a container and soak it for 24 hours.. Or put the paper pieces in a pot of water and boil for 1 – 2 hours, stirring occasionally and adding more water when needed.

3. When the paper is mushy drain it in a fine holed strainer

4. In a new bowl mix together 2 cups cold water and ½ cup flour.

5. In a pot bring 2 cups of water to a boil and then add the flour/cold water mixture. Bring this to a boil again.

6. Remove this mixture from the stove and add 3 tbsp. of sugar

7. Allow this paste to cool down and thicken

8. From the paper remove as much water as possible and add enough paste to coat the paper nicely.

9. Sandwich the paper pulp between 2 pieces of wax paper and using a rolling pin make it as thin as possible.

10. Put this on a tray or counter and let dry completely

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!
