self recognition craft

Hate to admit but recently my son has been having trouble realizing there is always a consequences to what he says and does. He has entered the stage of "it is not my fault" even though it is and the "she did it so I did too". :/ 
So today I took him outside one on one and we traced his feet and hands and I asked him to fill in the rest. (head,face,hair,arms,legs, and anything else he knows he has or has on pants and t-shirt) We then wrote down who controls his hands, feet, what he says and how he reacts to things. For a hyper kid he actually did really well listening as he finished up drawling himself. 
Before we went in he helped me write I control what  I say and do under his picture and we went threw what is a nice thing to say/do and what is a big no.
Even if your child is not going threw this it is still a very neat activity to see how a child looks at him/her self. My son made sure not to forget the small details, scratch on his foot and even the color of his it was interesting to watch

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!
