Shaving cream and water balloons play

Fun sensory play idea
My kids wanted to play outside this morning "sooo bad"(in their words), while I wanted to finish packing for our move.....long story short...
they won :)
So to make sure they had tons of fun I set up this water table idea. First I filled up the water balloons and place them in the table. By now my kids really REALLY just wanted to play, but I knew in about 2 minutes all water balloons would be gone and my kids would be asking me for more. So to make it more fun and a little harder to grab the balloons(thus making them last longer) I added shaving cream. 
By now they had a friend over and play time started. It was cute and funny seeing them roll around the balloons in the shaving cream trying to pick them up. To help clean up after all this shaving cream we filled buckets with water and everyone had a small bucket to pour on themselves to get clean...or smi till bath time. :)

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!
