Dancing oobleck

To start make the oobleck (to make it just add equal parts of cornstrach and water should be a soild when played with and a liquid when just holding)
Then there is two ways (i know of) to do this either cover your speaker with plastic wrap or use a metal tin on top of your speaker ( the meatal tin didnt work for me so i used plastic wrap make sure it is pulled tight)
Then pour the oobleck on top.
Now is the tricky part finding the right sound to make it dance the three i used were 40 Hz, 50 Hz, and 63 Hz. ( i simply went to youtube and searched these sounds I also turned it up all the way)
Once you find the right tone have fun watching it move!
hint-
try adding food coloring as it is moving to see it mix in.

Another thing is we found out these tones were really upsettign to our cats. (didnt know some tones bother there ears) So if you have animals you might want to move them to another room. Sadly we had to stop soon after we started cause of this but will do again another day that we can move our cats to another room.

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!
Side note~ Sadly I have …

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!~
