Having fun with Candy!

A review of the "Candy" crafts!

Pop Rocks painting
Just add pop rocks to paint to make a fun sensory paint. I did not give my kids paint brushes for this, I highly encourage them to fingure paint this time sense the paint felt different.




just mix paint and pixysticks to create a fun sensory paint idea!


Pop Rocks and shaving cream
Great for sensory play. My daughter loved listing to it pop and loved moving it from palce to place in different bowls and plates.


Ice breaker 
This is great fun for play on a hot day.
First fill half of a ice cube tray with pixy stix and paint and let freeze. 
Once frozen either with a real hammer or toy one let you'r kid break the ice and play! (sense there is paint you can also paint) (I let my daughter use a real hammer with safy glasses and had no issues and there was no chips flying anywere it was actelly very easy to break and smelled very good.


Painting with M&M's


HERE'S WHAT YOU DO:
Take a one pound bag of M&M's and empty in a bowl. (The amount of M&M's will vary based on the group size.)
Have your kids sort them by color into individual cups.
Once sorted, pour enough water to cover the M&M's and begin stirring with paint brushes.
Once the color of the water has changed you are ready to paint!!


This craft covers all of the senses!
SIGHT - Sorting the M&M's by color.
TOUCH - Describing the texture of the M&Ms while sorting.
HEARING - Listening to the M&M's being stirred in the cups.
SMELL - Smelling the M&M colored water while painting.
TASTE - After the craft was over... my mom let the kids munch on a few M&Ms during snack time.

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!
