Nature walk fun

So today me and my daughter went for a nature walk. On our walk we collected things we found along the way.
Some things included leaves, sticks, acorns, pinecones, and a feather.
After we collected these things we went home and dumped them onto a tray. This turned into a sensory tray sense there was a lot of different things to explore. I also talked to her about how some things (like leaves) are food for some bugs, and how thigns like pinecones are homes to other bugs.
After she was done exploring she used some of the items to make a picture with glue, others got returned back to nature.

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!
