Sensory bag~ Tips and more

Above is a sensory bag I made for my kids. We added water and shopkins. I choose these shopkins as we are talking about eating better in our family and I could ask them different questions about each little food. 

Other things you can use to make sensory bags~
hair gel
water+ food coloring
paint(normally if we use paint in a sensory bag we don't add in anything else, mess free finger painting)
small toys(animals, fairies, dinosaurs)
small letters
pom pom balls

Really try to focus on what your kid may be learning at the time or what they love. If we were learning letters I would use magnet letters as a example. Make sure to tape your bag closed so little hands don't dump them. Normally we tape all 4 sides but that is not needed. You could also tape them to a window when done, they look really nice when the light shines on them.

What have you put in your sensory bags for your kid/kids? Comment below, let us know!~

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!
Side note~ Sadly I have …

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!~
