Two different sensory play ideas with the same 3 ingredients

Needed~ cornstarch (cornflour in the UK)
water
shampoo

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.

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!
