Easy bath crayons

I always thought making bath crayons that worked where a lot of work and honestly I always skipped over trying. Well finally I tried this simple recipe my daughter actually found on a tv show. The crayons came out nice and worked!
So here it is~
First grate a bar of soap into a bowl, then mix some hot water and stir. (I used one bar of soap and little less then half cup of water)
Keep mixing till a dough forms.(this is when you add some food coloring, gel works amazing) No worries if your dough is not firm.
Once mixed place into molds. (we used a cookie tin but I would suggest maybe packing some play doh would just be easier to take them out)
Then place in a freezer for few hours.
Ours  were in for about 3 hours and could have used another hour but my kids were to excited to wait.Once frozen take out and they are ready to use!
note~ ours did not stain but test your surface first if you are worried.

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!
