Sewing with kids Scented bags

I first planned on doing this activity with my 6 year old but she didn't seem interested on the flip side my 4 year old was...My 4 year old is hyper, really a go go go I was unsure how this would turn out but who could pass up a time to teach.. 
So first we picked out some fabric scraps we had and cut out a long rectangle. Really you can make them any shape. We folded the rectangle in half and sewed 2 sides. (one did not need to be sewed as again we folded it in half) The picture above is one of many but the others were very blurry as I was trying to stay away from the needle lol
He did pretty well though and really was proud of himself after. 
Once the two sides were done we went outside and picked some lavender and mint and filled our bags. We finished by sewing the last side.
 Not bad for a first try and he loves rubbing them and smelling what is inside. I am thinking maybe the lavender one can stay between his pillow and pillow case for night time ;)

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!
