cooking with kids~ Edible Shopkins

You can do this with any shopkin but kooky cookie is favorite in this house. To make a edible Shopkin you will need~
Rice krispies treats 
gel icing(the tubes you use for writing on cakes)
icing (the kind you use to cover cakes, we used vanilla flavored)
cornstarch (corn flour in the UK) 
food coloring

Step 1 ~ shape some rice krispies into the shape of the shopkin you choose, then let it sit in the fridge as you do step 2. We did the shoes last.(step 5)  
Step 2~ In a bowl mix vanilla icing with cornstarch till you get a soft dough(don't be scared to add more of each if needed), now this is when you add in the food coloring. We used brown and mixed it with white to try to get our cookie color. We also wet our hands and found out the color mixes better when a little water is added. 
Step 3~ Cover the rice krispies with the icing dough.
Step 4~Now it is time to use the gel icing and make the face and dots. 
Step 5~ This is when we did the shoes. So we shaped the rice krispies and covered them in just colored icing so they would stick to the body better. 
Don't forget if you are making this Shopkin to cut out a bitten piece! 
Done~ and in the end it tasted amazing! 
note~ I wouldn't put it back in fridge when done it will become too hard to cut

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!
