Water beads

Water beads are simple and fun to make and play with. There are so many different crafts you can do with them. They are Non-toxic and biodegradable, although they where meant for flower arrangements they are used for many sensory ideas. Before we played with these we did a "don't" do list and things to not do with water beads. Again even though non toxic they should not be swallowed. My 3 year old was fine though and knew they where play only. You can do many things with water beads like add shaving cream to them, soaked them in glow water and make them glow, add them to a pool and many more!

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!
