galaxy jar

cotton balls
food coloring of our choice (we went with the purple, pink, blue mix)
glitter (we used black but silver or white I think would be better)

To start in a cup mix our first color and add in glitter. Then place a bunch of cotton balls in the bottom of a jar. Rip them apart a little so they look more like clouds then balls. Slowly pour the water on top, add more cotton balls if needed. Then add another layer of cotton balls and add the second color. Keep going till you use all the colors you want. Note we pour our water slowly and the colors didn't mix. We also used the stick to push the cotton balls in more and mix the glitter around.

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!
