Around the world

Our around the world in a suit case activity was a fun and easy. We used a old suitcase and filled it with things that would show off what is the world and what goes on in places other then where we live.  My kids enjoyed finding things to add and loved seeing pictures of family that live far. It was a easy way to introduce a globe to my kids and teach about new things.
Learning threw play is how my kids learn, and it's very effective.

 Think the only thing that could have made it better was if I had some food from around the world for them to try, maybe next time.
What would you add in a around the world suitcase with your child?

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!
