Nature walk as the day ends

Walking during the day is fun in itself but at night new creatures and sounds arise and it can be just as fun. We love walking in the evening. It helps get out any extra energy before bedtime and gives kids something to think of as they drift off to sleep. The sky changes different colors and the moon shines different shapes. A extra thing we like to do is to bring glo sticks. It also helps keep kids safe as they glo in the dark. (of course flash lights work too but I found for little kids it wasn't always easy to them not to shine it at passing cars or faces.) At night owls come out with different sounds and spiders start to make webs for the night. Another idea is to do a nighttime scavenger hunt. It can be the same things you would look for in the day just a little harder cause its turning dark.

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!
