Coffee/tea shop play

This is our first time using coffee beans in a play idea. It was really enjoyable and a big hit. We set up a sensory bin with the coffee beans, cups, spoon, and some sugar. Then to go along with the coffee I gave my kids some loose tea, plates, and play dough. 

They quickly went to work making donuts and little cakes.

This was their coffee filled doughnut :)

Swirled one, to make swirled donuts easy just roll
a ball of play doh  then make a thin line using a different color and wrap it around the ball. Then in the palm of your hand slowly twist the ball to make swirls.
The coffee beans will be stored away to play with again at another time and the tea went to our hermit crabs to enjoy :)
Have good day!~

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!
