learning through play (shopping play)

This time we set up a grocery store (complete with a check out place, not in picture) and home kitchen.
In the grocery store we marked everything with a price to help learn about money and counting. (you could also teach about colors of all the fruit and stuff.)
In the kitchen and grill area we set up a small toy trash can, to help go over how important it is to clean up after making a mess "cooking", we also went over what all the tools in the kitchen are called.
We did have things set up that are not in the pictures. (more food etc.) Hint for setting up something like this~ check facebook yard sale pages! I got everything (but the garden items that we reviewed) for cheap threw yard sale pages. So even though it looks like a lot I spent maybe $20 about £14 in the uk for this set up.

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!
