sensory play with Bunchems!

First of all let me say I seen and herd reviews on this toy and as split as they are I decided we still needed to try them and I am very thankful we did! Bunchems stick together but are not sticky, they are like little Velcro balls.  That being said a lot of the reviews I seen are negative because of kids getting them stuck in their hair, with a little supervision and a strong warning it has been days now with no problems. Kids can really go wild and build what ever they want with this toy.
We got the mega box that came with a idea book and different things(seen below). I could see using the different building pieces in play doh making it a toy that can be used in different ways.



Another plus that I found with Bunchems is the color! They are brightly colored and come in over 6 different colors. Easy way to go over coloring learning with little ones. 

I found this toy to be good for little ones learning fine motor control along with engaging different senses. The balls are soft yet hard and looking close enough you can see the little hooks that make them work.

We went on to make fire works, rainbow, and different things this round of play and am excited to get them out again later. DO NOT let the reviews scare you away from letting a child experience this neat toy! A little supervision goes a long way. I do recommend playing on a hard surface though so they do not pick up dirt.

Organizing for summer cheap!

Recently I made my way to my local dollar store(same as Poundland in UK) and I am so happy I did. There was so many bins and buckets in many colors. So here is how I cleaned up my kids summer toys. For small balls, chalk, and bubbles I grabbed 3 small bins as seen above. For water toys I grabbed a big blue bin and I made sure all bins I bought had holes rather they were for wet toys or not. We got small bugs in our storage room and I am hoping the holes would kept bugs from setting up home in the bottom of the bins. Some other ideas we like to use but have not yet are... Trash bin for bigger balls or large shoe rack works too Clothes hamper for pool toys & Mesh bag for sand toys Before we really even got some what organized we use to use crates but I found that with many kids going threw creates to find certain toys it quickly got messy so I really like the idea of having bins for certain toys. I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…

Fizzing planets

I am sure I said this before but this really was one of my personal favorite actives. It came out amazing and my son loved it. Would for sure do this again. 
So it is simply called fizzing planets. You mix a little bit of water in baking soda and add food coloring to color it like the planet you choose. I went by a simple google picture to color the planets and then I realized I got some wrong but we also had a book to look at and read to see some real colors.  Once you make your planets let them cry for a couple of hours. You can place them in the freezer to speed this up. 

Then slowly pour vinegar over the planets to see them fizz! It started to look like a Galaxy then in the end it ended up looking like one big planet.





So neat!
