Planetarium in a box

needed to make~
Big box
black construction paper
paint (color of your choice)
decorations of your choice
I pad/ kindle fire anything that will allow you to play a video  

Start off by cutting a hole big enough for a child's head and maybe even shoulders to fit into. Then cut a hole on top just big enough for the device of your choice to fit without falling in.  Now is the fun part and the part that is kid friendly...Decorate your planetarium any way you want. We painted blue then used black glitter and yellow paper stars. Once done let dry. After that find a nice dark spot and a great video to watch and have fun!

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!
