Teaching about living and non living things

First I printed out pictures of living things and non living things from my computer.Then I wrote on one piece of paper living another piece not living and taped them to a wall. (these walls are in my craft space if anyone is wondering why they are painted) On one more piece of paper I wrote down ways to tell if something is living or not. The questions I used were-
Does it eat?
Does it grow?
Does it move?
Does it reproduce?
Once all signs were up, I then gave my daughter one picture at a time and went over all the questions to find out is it living or not and she taped them under the right section.

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!
