Easy home made cat toy inspired by kids

With the new addition of two kittens came a expensive "need" list. Food, litter, litter boxes, vet bills, treats, and who could forget toys! Kittens thrive on toys and playing. Well that statement is for sure true with these two little kittens. They break and chew up toys more then my toddles ever did. So it was time to get creative with making them toys with the things around us. They where both found as strays so that inspired my daughter to think about what they would have seen and learned being outside. Off she went collecting feathers and sticks. She decided to add string and hang the feathers she found off of the stick. One thing to always be careful with is using clean feathers, don't want to get anyone sick! Also make sure there is no sharp points. Anyway it was a big hit! and yes after awhile it got destroyed like every other toy but it was free and can easily be recreated!

Welcome Mario & Mia!

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!
