laundry day for kids/toddlers

Even though laundry day is almost every day in my house, we made a special day to start teaching my kids how to help. This was like a fun game for them but more importantly it was another teaching step. 
We started off with some dirty rags(to be honest it was rags they made dirty from spilling juice), we then made a soapy bin and two clean water bins. As they washed their rags in the soapy water, I showed them how our washer spins the clothes.Once they were nice and soapy it was time to rinse them in our first bin of clean water, then double check their is no more soap in the second clean water bin. (just like how our washer would refill and make sure of the same thing) 
Once done we hung them up to dry on a line to dry.
Their new chore for now will put helping me fill the washer and start it.

note~this was suppose to be done outside but it was a little to chilly to have water play outside today. Our kitchen floor with a towel down worked, maybe we will revisit once its hot out again. :)

One way I keep my kids learning over the summer break!

We all know that summer can be one time our kids can lose what they learn during the school year. We get told this over and over every year and it is very true. So every summer we try to fit in as much learning as we can(while still having fun). This year we are trying spring/summer journals. As much as possible we  take walks and every time the kids see something they find interesting they either write about it and/or draw a picture to go with it. This way we are keeping up with new vocabulary and learning about many different things.
So yeah, this is the new thing we are adding this summer to help keep my kids learning! So far it has been a big hit, lets hope it stays that way. :)



Have a good rest of your morning, evening, or night! Bye guys!~

Spring dollar sensory bin/easy cheap sensory play

Spring is here finally! We are so ready for the warmer weather! To celebrate the start of spring I decided a nice sensory bin was a good idea. So off to the local dollar store I went to see what they would have. Dollar stores are a great place to find cheap ideas for play. 
They had a whole selection of fairies and gnomes and many accessories. This was the tray I put together for my kids but my kids are older and I know they wont eat any of this. If you have younger kids or toddlers  I suggest looking around to find more age appropriate items. I also look for items that will not just sit around or go to waste. These little figures will go in a play bin for not only my kids to enjoy threw the spring/summer but for my neighborhood kids to enjoy also. The only thing I wish I would have added to this tray was water. We covered the sense of touch here in many ways and water would have been a great add on. Anyway this was my kids bin but you can make many different bins from dollar stores …
