Watermelon crafts!

Great for hot days!
watermelon ice-(paint)
First we put some green paint in the bottom of a muffin tin and put it in the frezzer. Once frozen we added the red paint and let it frezze. You can add some watermelon seeds if you like. Once done we ran the tin under warm water and painted with the ice (outside).

Valentines day sensory bin for all ages!

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.
