Reusable bubbles + tips

After seeing this done over and over by many different people I knew we would have to give it a try but after many fail attempts we backed off for awhile. Then while waiting for my daughter to get out of school I tried again and success! What I found out is that many people left out some important info. Here is what we did~
The mixer is really a  kind of slime mixture we have made many times before. One bottle of glue mixed with food coloring of our choice and then slowly add in liquid starch. Here is the first important tip...add in over the amount to make slime..you want our slime to break when pulled apart..We added about one cup. Once mixed take out of cup and leave on a plate for few hours. We switched the plates out after the liquid starch puddled on the plate and mixed the "slime" each time. 
When our "slime" is no longer wet it is time to blow bubbles! Here is the next important thing~ only take a little bit of the "slime" at one time and work it in our hands till soft. Now wrap it around a straw and hold so no air escapes. This makes it easier. Bubbles will easily form but make sure to blow slowly as holes can easily happen. 
These bubbles are so fun to play with and worth the work! 
We placed our mix in a air tight bin and so far it has been a week and still working fine.

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!
