Valentines day sensory bin

This was a idea you can remake in all different ways. 
We used shaving cream, sprinkles, food coloring, toys and candy hearts.
You could use whipped cream to make it all edible, glitter rather then sprinkles, and other toys you have on hand. We were able to talk about a few of the 5 senses in this activity.  Smell of the shaving cream, touch of the different things included, the way everything looked for sight, and the noises the shaving cream made when squeezed in their hands. If you use whipped cream you can cover all 5!
This was a great before bath idea and lasted awhile for us, until mommy said it was bath time. 
note~ the toys we used are called num noms, bought at our local toy store.

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!
