Salt dough heart suncatcher

2 cups of flour 1 cup of salt
1 cup of water
then make a heart shape. (I was able to make two nice size hearts with this recipie)

Then take ur kid/kids hand and place it in the heart and push down. Once you have the outline of the hand use a knift to cut the inside hand out.

Then using perler beads let ur kid/kids fill the inside of the hand. (do not over do it one layer is good)

Place in oven at 350 degrees for about 25mins (check every now and then)

Once the beads are melted take out the heart and let it cool. (the top right picture is my sons heart once taken out of the oven)

Once cool it can be painted!

These beads are non toxic in the oven, how ever pony beads do give off some toxic fumes. You can use pony beads instead but open a window or two!!

also I did bake the hand that I cut out from these hearts and let my kids paint them too!

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!
