Mario box tunnel!

When we made the box washer my son (who loves Mario) jumped inside and said look I'm in a Mario pipe! That is when this idea was born. Built with 6 x-large boxes and painted to go with the Mario theme this box tunnel has been a huge hit. The pictures are from after it was painted and still needed to be tapped together. It measured 9 feet by 6 1/2 feet. Once we are done inside with it we plan on bringing it outside for the neighborhood kids or maybe make it bigger by adding different Mario worlds. :)

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!
