Halloween night safety tips

Halloween is a fun time of the year for kids, lets remember to be safe with these tips!

~Halloween starts by getting the right size costume. Too big could make a kid trip and fall and too small will restrict movement.
~Mask can block eye sight, mask free is the best way to go but if your child chooses a mask costume make sure the eye holes are big enough to see clearly out of.
~Try to stay away from dark costumes, or add reflective tape. (even a car going slow can kill a kid if hit)(We like to go all out with glow sticks, kids love them)
~Test all make up on skin before the night of Halloween. This way you will know if it irritates skin ahead of time.
~Remind kids to not eat any candy till it has been checked over.
~Do not let little kids go alone. (You would think that was be common sense but I was surprised to see how many were just let to go by themselves last year)
~Stick to side walks or paths
~Remind kids to never go into someones house.
~Skip over any dark houses.(no lights means no candy)
~Decided a trick or treat route ahead of time.
~Watch for cars backing out of driveways.
~When crossing streets..stop, listen, look both ways..make eye contact with drivers before crossing so you know for sure they see you.

Take a extra step, make sure any Halloween costume you use is flame retardant.

Stay safe!& Happy Halloween from my family to yours!

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!
