Soapy ice play

this play time activity is easy to recreate and can be done inside, outside and even in the bath. All you need is kid soap and a muffin/cupcake tray. The soap I used was all ready colored but if you get one that is not try mixing food coloring in to make it colorful. Pour soap into each section and freeze. Once frozen run under warm water quickly to make it easier to get the cubes out. Few of ours melt pretty quick but left behind a soap ice mixture that had a real neat feeling. After some play it was taken into bath time. The bottom left picture was how it looked after most melted. (we used a baking sheet to play with them on) You could also turn this into a color mixing lesson if wanted. 
Note~thinking if you add some water into the soap before freezing they would stick longer/melt slower.

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!
