Swinging and paint activity for kids

Messy but fun and always unique! 
We had a old box from moving and some washable paint. We used old shoes and made swinging art. First I let them use the paint bottles and swing, squirting the paint onto the box. When they had a good amount of paint on the box they laid on theirs bellies and swung rubbing the paint around with their shoes as they went. I thought this would be even funner to do bare foot but decided not too with the wood chips everywhere. Next time I would try to find a swing with grass under and maybe use a white box cause the brown made it look dirty. Either way the kids didn't mind and love trying this activity out.

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!
