Pumpkin play houses

Things just really do not last in our house. We are always trying to think of ways to incorporate any thing into play time. We had few more small pumpkins left and decided to make a pumpkin neighborhood. We cleaned them and I cut a door out of each.(would look cool with windows too) Added some play toys and out we went. Found a nice spot with lots of leaves and pine cones and played. It was fun and festive. When done we did some pumpkin chunkin, but that is another post for another time. :)

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!
