cardboard washer and felt clothes

Personally I felt like first thing in the morning was a little to early to cut and paint but my kids did not! Seems like my daughter dreamed of this cause first thing after breakfast she asked me over and over..and over..for a box washer. Lucky we had a empty box sitting around (that in its self is rare) so I got to work taping up the box and painting it. I  tried to go off of our real washer, my thought was maybe then they will learn how to work our real washer and could start helping with wash but in reality our washer is so big that my 4'10" self needs to jump on it to get everything out so that might not be a possibility but we can try. Anyway after I got done with the washer I had a request for felt clothes. That is pretty simple. I just stack the felt in 2's or 3's and cut all shirts at once...all socks at once and so on. (just make sure to have good scissors)

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!
