Feelings cards

In our family we are big talkers, but my kids are still  learning that. So this craft was a good way to have a open conversion about feelings without them feeling like I am just lecturing them. 
I made the cards (really could have just used index cards) and on each I wrote 
When I
I am feeling
I need
Then we talked about some things like my son pinching. (he is 3 and this has become a new thing) 
On the "I need" line talk about things your kid/kids could do when they feel these different ways. For the pinching card we talked about things he could do before he even went as far as to pinch someone and what he needs to do after, like say sorry and give a hug.

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!
