Peachy Fruit Leather

10 large Peaches, washed, pitted, and cut in half (I don't peel them)

1/3 C. sugar

In a large saucepan over medium-low heat, cook the peaches and the sugar until the peaches are tender (about 45 minutes). Let it cool a bit.

Meanwhile, prepare your pans. On two sheet pans, roll out heavy-duty plastic wrap. Spray with a little oil.

Puree the mixture in a blender or food processor until very smooth. With an offset spatula, spread the mixture over the prepared wrap to a thickness of about 1/4" (not too thick, not too thin). Try to spread the peach mixture as evenly as possible to allow for even drying.

Place the pans in an oven on the lowest setting. Rotate the pans after a couple hours. My leather took about 3 hours to dry even though i heard of some taking up to 5.
When done take out and take off of plastic, and using another piece of plastic wrap, wrap it up again like a fruit roll up. and done!

Make sure you cover the whole cooking sheet sense the plastic wrap will shrink some.
Mines was a little sticky, and this can be done with other fruits too.

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!
