kids arrange flowers, sensory play

This morning we woke up and decided to go collect flowers after the rain last night. We went into our back woods and found it was colorful with different flowers growing all over. My kids went threw and collect what ever flowers they liked best. When we came back in we all made this flower arrangement together. They enjoyed smelling each flower as each flower smelled completely different. This gave me a open way to talk about the sense of smell and even go threw the different colors and sizes. Great to do with a large group or could be done individually in cups.

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!
