Slime inspired by the new project mc2 dolls

My daughter received one of the new Project Mc2 dolls for Christmas. The doll had came with a volcano experiment and once we did that experiment we were not done. Included in this box was a small beaker made to look like it was filled with something pink. This sparked my daughters imagination! She asked the next day if we could make pink slime as that is what she felt like was in the beaker. Of course we can!! We got everything together~
 one bottle of glue
pink food coloring (so it matched!)
black glitter(she loves glitter) 
liquid starch

Then went to work making this easy slime
In a bowl pour out all the glue, then add in the pink food coloring and glitter and mix. Then slowly pour in the liquid starch while mixing. It does not take much. Keep mixing till slime forms. (it actually happens really quick after the starch is poured in) Let it sit for a minute and it is good to go. 


We took out her experiment toys too. She tried pouring the slime into each tube before placing it on the table to try more out. 

(brush,volcano, and beaker all from the doll set)

The little Mc2 beaker that sparked this idea next to our big beaker.~

After awhile we took the little toys that came with the doll and started stamping into the slime.
My daughter thought the noise they all made was so funny. :)


The dolls shoes worked too!
This was a moms idea to show her just how stretchy this slime could be. This is the stand the doll came with. We laid the slime on the hooks and counted how long it would take for it all to drop. In the end every thing came off clean and easy. This slime can be stored in a air tight container for few days after too!~ 

Do not forget to check out the new Project Mc2 Dolls, we are hoping to get another! ;)

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!~

Spring dollar sensory bin/easy cheap sensory play

Spring is here finally! We are so ready for the warmer weather! To celebrate the start of spring I decided a nice sensory bin was a good idea. So off to the local dollar store I went to see what they would have. Dollar stores are a great place to find cheap ideas for play. 
They had a whole selection of fairies and gnomes and many accessories. This was the tray I put together for my kids but my kids are older and I know they wont eat any of this. If you have younger kids or toddlers  I suggest looking around to find more age appropriate items. I also look for items that will not just sit around or go to waste. These little figures will go in a play bin for not only my kids to enjoy threw the spring/summer but for my neighborhood kids to enjoy also. The only thing I wish I would have added to this tray was water. We covered the sense of touch here in many ways and water would have been a great add on. Anyway this was my kids bin but you can make many different bins from dollar stores …
