Tips on moving with kidz

We are going threw a move as I type and wanted to share few things that worked with helping my kids get threw this change.

1. Be honest, we always tell our kids to be honest so set the example. Let them know when you are thinking of moving, and when you know for sure you are. Last thing you want to do is throw it on the, last minute.

2. If possible let them go house hunting with you or even look threw pictures on the computer of the homes.

3. Be positive! Ask questions like what color would you make your room?, what room do you like best? Where could the tv go? computer? bed?

4. Let them help you move. My kids wanted to help pack up the car so bad, so we let them carry what ever they could.

5.If possible take a tour of the neighborhood, where they will go to school at and maybe even some local places to eat and play.

6. Map you'r move. Grab a old map and outline the route from the old house to the new home. Some times seeing how far or close you are going helps.

Be open to take and hear feedback~
Some thing my kids enjoyed was planning out their room and bathroom. We went window shopping and looked at some things they would like. New themes and colors. Even if you are not going to get anything, it makes kids excited to see what could be.

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!
