Dream Catcher

Sturdy paper plate OR cardboard 
Tape or glue

1. Cut your paper plate or cardboard into a ring. It's important that the material you are using for your ring is sturdy, otherwise it will just buckle when you begin to wrap the yarn around it.

2. Cut slits all around your paper plate, make at least 8 slits around.

3. Glue or tape the end of the yarn to the back of your ring. Begin to string your yarn through the slits all around the ring, making an uneven criss-cross pattern.

4. When you are happy with your pattern cut the yarn, leaving a little extra. Glue or tape the extra yarn to the back of the ring, making it into a loop shape to hang your dream catcher.

5. Cut 3 lengths of yarn, tie a knot at the end of each. String beads onto the yarn and glue or tape them to the back of your dream catcher.
I left one a little longer and tied a couple feathers to the end.

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!
