Ice cream bin!

One of the best bins ever!Great for sensory play!
This is fake ice cream that smells and feels like real ice cream!
Mix 1 cup of cornstrach with a half cup of water. (till it is a solid when you touch it and a liquid when holding it) 
Then for chocolate add some coco mix (or a pack of hot chocolate, whatever you have like that to make the chocolate smell and look)
To make vanilla add 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
To make strawberry add some pink food coloring (or red) and some strawberry extract

One done freeze till hard, once frozen take out and hit with hammer(if want to make it into little pieces)
Then have fun playing. This does melt like normal ice cream with play and once melt acts like oobleck. (oobleck is another craft on here)

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!
