Making flowers and leaves glow!

This was a neat experiment to see if we could make flowers and leaves glow. 
So first we made glow water. (cut open a highlighter and soak it in water for a couple hours.)
Then we went about picking some flowers and leaves from a nature walk.
Once we got home we put them in the glow water. Covering everything so nothing was above water and let it sit for about 4 more hours.
Once the time was up we took them out and dried them.
Went to our bathroom, the only room we can make completely dark and turned on our black light.
To our suprise both glowed, but the flowers had a way better glow!
This made for a great time to have a lesson on how plants and trees make food for themselves. (Photosynthesis)

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!
