Christmas tree oobleck

To make this oobleck add 1 cup of water(with green food coloring) to 1 1/2 cups of cornstarch (corn flour in UK)
mix till it forms
oobleck should be a solid when pressed on but a liquid when relaxed
 Then add in some Christmas decorations. You could add in some pine oil but you would have to make sure it is not eaten. Without the oil it is okay if a little one tries it. 
My kids  liked covering all the decorations and then finding them again.
Good for sensory play you can ask questions like
how does it smell
how does it feel
is it soft
what color is it
what color is the decorations
how many decorations are included
Just remember to have 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!
