DIY walking sticks

Walking sticks are great for kids and adults alike. I found they have been helpful with keeping little ones in line and from wondering off to touch something while on a walk or hike. They are pretty easy to make and can be as unique as a child wants. Just find any stick around chest height of the person that will be carrying it and thick. Then let them go crazy painting it the way they want. Once dried have fun going on walks and showing off the new walking sticks you made. :) 
note~ Maybe add ribbon and beads to make each stick more personal.

Valentines day sensory bin for all ages!

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!
