recycled pumpkin

need-
newspaper
tape
stick
black paint
orange paint (or food coloring)
paper towels
water/glue mix (add about a half bottle of glue and little bit of water to make it less sticky)

First using the newspaper make a ball. We did this by using one piece, making a ball then using the next and wrapping that around the first till the paper was gone.
Then tap the paper so that it stays in a ball shape.
Once done rip pieces of paper towels into strips, and dip them in the water/glue mix and place around the ball till it is fully covered.
note- I did not have orange paint so thinking ahead I mixed some red and yellow food coloring in the glue/water mix to make orange. If you have paint though and would rather paint dont worrie about that.

Once the ball is covered let it dry. It might take over night.

Once dry (if you did not use the food coloring to color the "pumpkin" orange) you can now paint it orange and add the face.

To finish add a hole to the top (this was a adult job i nmy house sense my daughter is only 3) and palce a stick in for the stem.Then DONE!!

you now have ur own recycle pumpkin!

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!
Side note~ Sadly I have …

One way I keep my kids learning over the summer break!

We all know that summer can be one time our kids can lose what they learn during the school year. We get told this over and over every year and it is very true. So every summer we try to fit in as much learning as we can(while still having fun). This year we are trying spring/summer journals. As much as possible we  take walks and every time the kids see something they find interesting they either write about it and/or draw a picture to go with it. This way we are keeping up with new vocabulary and learning about many different things.
So yeah, this is the new thing we are adding this summer to help keep my kids learning! So far it has been a big hit, lets hope it stays that way. :)



Have a good rest of your morning, evening, or night! Bye guys!~
