magnetic slime

This is one of the best slime recipes ever!
List of things you will need~
iron fillings (easily bought online)
liquid starch
strong magnet

Step 1~ Pour one bottle of glue into a bowl or cup and mix in iron fillings.I used about half a small bottle.

Step 2~ SLOWLY add liquid starch, it is best to start with a small amount and only add more if needed. Otherwise it will come out like rubber. It should still work but I personally like it more following. Mix till slime forms, it is best to mix with hands.

That is it. I also suggest buying new magnets as old ones might not be that strong after sitting.
I found ones like these at my local craft store, we did try kid ones but they were not strong enough.
Adult supervision required, as always :)
Nothing about this craft is edible but it is all really neat!
Note~ This can be turned into a science lesson! Expand this activity and talk all about magnets. 
Video will be up shortly for this activity.

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!
