Tapioca sensory play

We used tapioca once before in sensory play (seen here~ http://funthingstodowithurkidz.blogspot.com/2013/06/edible-water-beads.html)
This time we did not use the beads but we used crushed tapioca. We cooked it one the stove with water till it started to form a gel then dishes it out and add food coloring. 
The nice thing about this is that it gives you many different ways to learn. You could focus on vocabulary, 5 senses, and even color mixing. 
Messy sensory play!~
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!
