You melt my heart activity

Needed~
baking soda
food coloring
glitter
vinegar
heart shaped tray or cups

In a bowl mix water with the food coloring you choose, then slowly add in baking soda till you have a mixture you can pick up and pack into a mold. Top with glitter and let it dry. I suggest you do not put it in the freezer, I did and the fizzing reaction took awhile to happen and was not as big as it would have been if not frozen. When me and my kids did this experiment we just talked about Valentines day and what they thought about it. I would have explained this reaction between the baking soda and vinegar but this is a experiment we do in all different ways and they are well aware of the reaction between the two.

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!
