shucking corn for toddlers/kids

Last night we had corn with our dinner and instead of just shucking the corn and being done, I decided to hand it over to my 4 year old. She had a lot of fun helping and loved that she could do it all by herself. I loved that just letting her do something this simple was good for her. It helped with her hand eye coordination, helped build her little muscles and gave her a boost of confidence that she could actually do it and finish what she started.
Question~ does ur kids enjoy helping with dinner? what is their favorite thing to make?

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!
