homemade tea bags

We made ours by filling a coffee filter with loose tea, then folding the filter and stapling it closed. Once done add a piece if string(we stapled a piece on) and on the end of the string add a paper tag. Let ur child label the tea, we used green tea, black tea, and lavender tea but I let her have fun with the labels. Once done add ur tea bag to some hot water and have a tea party!!!
Great for sensory play.
How does the tea smell?

what color is it?
what color does it make the water?
Also great for pouring practice.

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!
