Pumpkin dough made with only two ingredients


To make this activity dough you will need 
one 15oz can of pumpkin
one box of corn starch (corn flour in the UK)
Place all the pumpkin in a bowl then add about 1/3 box of corn starch at a time and mix. We used all the cornstarch but a very little, we placed the little bit left on the table. Only cause that is what my daughter wanted to do. The dough was not sticky once mixed. 
You could also add pumpkin spice but it is really not needed.
side note~(The snake thing in the back is my sons Halloween costume. ;) We had to make it home made this year cause he just HAD to be a snake. 

Soon after we started playing my son came over and like normal wanted to add the dough to water. He is experimenting and learning so why not. I gave him a bowl with a little bit of water and he went to work mixing the dough in a little bit at a time. After mixing all the dough in it really didn't change much. It became more of a free flowing dough but was not really messy.

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!
Side note~ Sadly I have …

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!~
