Neon glow rice

You will need:
Rice
zip-lock bags
Neon/Fluorescent or glow in the dark paint
Rubbing alcohol
black light (if using neon paint)

Place the desired amount of rice for each color in a Ziploc bag. Add about a tablespoon of the glowing paint of your choice and about one tablespoon of rubbing alcohol. The rubbing alcohol helps coat the rice, watering down the paint so you need less and helps the rice dry faster. Seal the bag and then shake, knead, and mix until the rice is evenly coated. Then lay the rice out to dry on a cookie sheet. I periodically "mix" the rice up to help it dry completely. When the rice is dry and it is dark, get ready for some GLOWING fun!!

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!
