How I save school work

School work is something that just collected in one bag or the other for years. This school year I was determined to do something with it all. So the first thing I did to get this all organized was go threw it all and decided what was worth keeping. I kept things like progress reports, first day items, any awards, and some things my daughter has had trouble with learning. (I keep that in case she needs to look over it again in the future.) Anything else went into recycling. 
This is step will be a lot easier when you dont have piles to go threw and only have to go threw what your child brings home. Then I hole punched anything that could go in a binder and anything that couldn't went into the front or back pocket. This has made keeping personal papers for future use so much easier and my daughter enjoys looking threw the things she has made and done now. :)

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!
