need-
sticks and string
First line the sticks up in a row, then using the string wrap the first stick then move on to the second stick and once that one is wrapped wrap the first one to the second one. Keep going wrapping the next stick to the one before to make the raft strong. 
note- You can also use another stick and a piece of paper to make a sail. Ours was just not staying in place.

Magic sticks or decoration sticks. 
Can be used for fun or to show off.
note- not for kids who will poke/hit another kid with them as these can be pointy and hurt.
need-
sticks and paint. 
Thats it and have fun painting. 
We used washable paint.

Star stick craft with feather
need-
sticks
string
feather

Frist lay the sticks out into a star shape then using the string tie them toghter. note- its a little tricky as you can see we had to tie it in many places to make it strong.
Once done tie the feather to a piece of string then tie the other side to the star and done!


A nature display-
First find a large y shape stick. Then using yarn or string wrap the stick going horizontal accross. Once done tie the string off. My daughter also add some beads. I used two tacks and hung by the strings on either side. Once done add whatever treasures you find on a nature walk and enjoy you'r new display!

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!
