Nature tree~

At the end of every year, my family likes to help the animals who mind find a hard time getting food a tthis time of the year. It's a family tradition here. This year we ended up with 1 small fake tree, 1 big 6 foot tree, and a small 3 foot real tree. So this is what we did with the little real tree to help and give back to the earth this year. Check it out and thank you all for being fans!~

In this nature tree we decided to do~

Different pine cone bird feeders (pine cones covered with peanut butter and bird seed)The other that we did was a pine cones covered with peanut butter and cranberries.

Then we did two different kinds of tree garland.
One was cheerios on a string. (can see in the bottom left picture)
The other was cranberries and peanuts on a string. (I used a string and a sewing needle for the cranberries and just tied a peanut on every now and then. (can be seen in bottom right picture)

Then the star was a cardboard cut out covered with peanut butter and birdseed.

Last we added the left over peanuts, cranberries, and birdseed to the bottom of the tree stand and set it outside.

note- you can make any of these and hang them on any tree outside!

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!
