tooth paste slime bin

My daughter will be starting school soon and will need to go to the dentist to get a healthy check out. She is not a big fan of that happening so I am trying everything in my power to help her get over this fear she shouldn't have. I thought why not start at something we do all the time...SENSORY PLAY!
This is the first bin I made for involving dentist items. The teeth we made out of clay along with the little braces pieces. The slime recipe is this~
 In one bowl pour one  bottle of glue, fill the bottle back up with water and add that too. This is when you add any extras like color or glitter.
Then in another bowl add one cup of water and one teaspoon of borax.
Once both bowls are mixed slowly pour the borax water into the glue water and mix.
Slime should take few mins to form.
The tools are from a play doh set.
The sliem came out perfect, she was able to stamp in it but was soft enough  to push in the tooth brush and have it slowly pour out. 

I just wanted this to be a fun and positive away to enjoy some things she might see at the dentist, and it proved to be just that.~

Question~ how did you get your own kids ready to go to a place that are unsure about?

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!
