Slime egg

Fun to play with not to eat
This slime egg is  not edible but is made up of~
one bottle of glue
white food coloring
yellow food coloring 
liquid starch

To make the yolk
pour small amount of glue in a cup and mix in yellow food coloring and a small amount of water.We did not measure but probably used table spoon of glue and two teaspoons of water. Mix and slowly add in some liquid starch. We used about 1 tablespoon. You do not want it be to much like slime so the more liquid starch you add the more rubber like it gets. We then put it in a half ball mold we had and let it sit..(it mold was a paint palette we had sitting around)..for like 2 days cause I forgot about it...
to make the white part we poured the rest of the glue in a cup, added white food coloring mixed then filled the glue bottle back up with water (3/4 the way) and mixed that in. Then slowly add in liquid starch but not a lot..just enough for the slime to form. 
Again do not forget the more liquid starch you add the more like rubber it becomes so we did not add much for that.
When done just add the yolk
I added this for play time in my kids play kitchen and they really enjoy it. We also added plastic Easter eggs so they can pretend cracking eggs.
Note~ Remember not edible so just skip it till kids are old enough to know not to eat or try. :)

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!
