Using legos to help spell

Hands on spelling idea
On big legos write the whole word your child needs help learning, then using the little legos to write out each letter. Place all little legos together in a pile and have your child find the right blocks to spell out each word. You can make this harder by taking out all big blocks and just give the small letter ones. Call out a word and have your child spell each word. 
We used permitted marker to write on our blocks and that stayed the whole time we played and was easy to wipe off after but you could use labels and write on that then place on the blocks. 
We like to do this every time we get a new spelling list from school and again right before taking spelling test.

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!
