Pool noddle ring toss

As the end of summer comes and school starts we like to clear out any summer toys that are broken or will not get played with again next year. So for us that meant clearing out the pool noddles! My kids learned to swim now and could care less for them, so instead of throwing them out we made them into a game. Pool noddle ring toss is fairly easy to put together. We used two pool noddles for the rings and taped them into circles. Then cut one pool noodle into 3 pieces and used sticks to stick them in the ground. It was very fun to watch as the kids threw them and the smaller ones even trying to hula hoop with them.

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!
