tree bark toy homes

Today is our free craft day again. Free craft day meaning we do not pay for anything that goes into the craft we make. You can use stuff you have, recycle stuff and stuff found in nature, again as long as you do not spend anything on it. So this time we went with tree bark homes/dens for toys. Some tree branches fell into our yard few days ago and that is how this idea started. We normally cut up the wood to use for the fireplace but then there is bark and leaves still left all over, so we collected a few piece and my kids went to work making little dens and homes for toy erasers. They also tried making bridges and slides. It was fun, free and best thing was it got my kids outside and exploring.

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!
