Sponge crafts! review

So today we did 4 crafts all with sponges, lets review.
First one was these Spong water bombs- 
to make one you need 2 sponges
first you cut both of the sponges into fourths length-wise.
Then stack two layers of 4 sponge pieces,and using a piece of string or yarn tie it around the sponges as tight as possible. 
and Done!

Second one was Building with sponges
These were the pieces of sponge from the "sponge water bomb craft" but if you wanna make them just cut a sponge into fourths length-wise ands let your little ones have fun building with them.

Third was-

Sponge painting
 painting with pieces of sponges (good way to teach shapes and colors)

and last was -"cool" necklace

Great for play on hot days
First cut squares out of sponges then using needle put them all on a piece of string and tie off once done. Then wet and stick in zip lock bag and put i nthe freezer till frozen. Once frozen let you'r little one have fun wearing and playing with this. My little ones wouldnt wear it but loved stepping and jumping on it.

Than kyou for tuning in to this sponge play day! Come back soon!

One way I keep my kids learning over the summer break!

We all know that summer can be one time our kids can lose what they learn during the school year. We get told this over and over every year and it is very true. So every summer we try to fit in as much learning as we can(while still having fun). This year we are trying spring/summer journals. As much as possible we  take walks and every time the kids see something they find interesting they either write about it and/or draw a picture to go with it. This way we are keeping up with new vocabulary and learning about many different things.
So yeah, this is the new thing we are adding this summer to help keep my kids learning! So far it has been a big hit, lets hope it stays that way. :)

Have a good rest of your morning, evening, or night! Bye guys!~

Spring dollar sensory bin/easy cheap sensory play

Spring is here finally! We are so ready for the warmer weather! To celebrate the start of spring I decided a nice sensory bin was a good idea. So off to the local dollar store I went to see what they would have. Dollar stores are a great place to find cheap ideas for play. 
They had a whole selection of fairies and gnomes and many accessories. This was the tray I put together for my kids but my kids are older and I know they wont eat any of this. If you have younger kids or toddlers  I suggest looking around to find more age appropriate items. I also look for items that will not just sit around or go to waste. These little figures will go in a play bin for not only my kids to enjoy threw the spring/summer but for my neighborhood kids to enjoy also. The only thing I wish I would have added to this tray was water. We covered the sense of touch here in many ways and water would have been a great add on. Anyway this was my kids bin but you can make many different bins from dollar stores …
