Pine cones, cinnamon sticks, & fall leaves

This was just a simple bin to get into the feel of fall. We start by just placing everything in one of our water tables and examining it all. Trying to use all of our senses, we went threw each item. The cinnamon stick and pine cones were a good add for the sense of smell. Everything was good for sense of touch, sight and hearing. The only thing we didn't cover was taste but we could have if I made something with cinnamon. (maybe snack for after playtime?) 
After that got old we added water to our table. This made everything fun again. :) Seeing what floats and what sinks. 
Mixing everything up! This lead to us noticing that the cinnamon sticks were making the water change coloring. It went form clear to a reddish. 



So many things to explore. 

Look how pretty it looks...you know right before the kids came along :) 
Have a good day thanks for reading!

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!
