Tipi for kids

This has been on my to do list for awhile now and finally decided to face the challenge and do it. So with kids in tow we set out to make our tipi. The hardest part of this activity was finding all the sticks. The kids enjoyed it though, trying to find bigger and bigger sticks..see how can carry the biggest back and just having fun. After we got what we felt like was enough sticks and cleaned them of any sharp edges we went right into making up our tipi. We used string to tie them together and when it was finished we add two sheets. (sadly we did not have one big enough and when we went into making this we were going to make it all from sticks but finding enough sticks was proven to be hard so a blanket worked.)
It was just a fun learning experience. We are waiting our neighborhood kids to come home to play! As we built we made sure to hit some survival points on how to build shelter with just the things found in the woods. (no blankets needed ;) )

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!
