small shelter made in the woods

Above is a small shelter we made in the woods the other day. My kids love playing in the woods and personally I never feel like it is to early to start teaching them survival skills. So this time out in the woods we collected stick, leaves, bark to make a small shelter. It was interesting to see what their ideas are and it was just all around fun to create. We talked about keeping dry and the importance of having a safe shelter. Other things kids should know are~
Not to panic
simple first aid
how to find food
defending themselves
find their way home
stay warm
and how to get help
This all comes with time but remember to keep at it cause you never know if/when it will be needed.

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!
