Chocolate covered (heart shape) strawberries and marshmallows

chocolate chips
tooth picks
plastic knife

To make the strawberries heart shape we cut them in half then placed them next to each other and cut any extra off to make the heart shape. Stick a tooth pick in them when done and keep it in till they are covered in chocolate and cooled. We used sticks for the marshmallows to make them more of a handheld treat for little ones.(helped keep them clean)
So once you have the strawberries cut and the sticks place in the marshmallows it is time to melt the chocolate. This is how we did it~ Place chocolate chips in a medium pot over low/medium heat. Keep mixing till melted. Make sure to keep mixing so it does not burn. Once all is melted then dip marshmallows and strawberries. I dipped and my daughter decorated them with sprinkles once done. Do not let them cool first or the sprinkles will not stick. After all are decorated we place every thing in the fridge for a hour so the chocolate harden and it was ready to eat! 
Enjoy!~ :)

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!
