Two different sensory play ideas with the same 3 ingredients

Needed~ cornstarch (cornflour in the UK)

First mix the corn starch with shampoo ( we used about 1 1/2 cups of shampoo and about 1 1/2 cups of corn starch..give or take little) 
Keep mixing till a soft dough forms. At first it will be sticky but as kids keep working with it, it will go away. This is the first sensory thing to play with. Very soft and smells amazing. 
(note~ my daughter hands are blue cause of paint she played with before this project, not in this project should stain)
Once done take the container it was mixed in a little bit of the dough and add some water and mix. 
Bubbles start to form cause of the shampoo used.  This is the second sensory play thing. smelled great and leaves a bubble foam to play with.

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 …
