Flower discovery bottle

I really enjoy making bottles like this for my kids. Not only are they beautiful but  they make great center pieces for dinner that night and breakfast the next morning. :)
This bottle we added water and flowers form our garden. It was really neat seeing how the water reflected off of some of the flowers, and was a nice way to go over colors, plant parts, and counting.
I suggest if you do this not to glue the lid close unless really needed after a few days our water become yellow and was no longer interesting to my kids when it did.  You can reuse the bottle for another craft if not glued on.

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!
