Candle Slime

Need~
Candle wax ( I normally have pieces left over from old candles)
glue
liquid starch

This is a adult helping craft!(this is not edible no matter how nice it smells lol) but once it is done it is great for play and for testing your sense of smell.

The first thing to do is pour one bottle of glue into a bowl. Then melt a little bit of wax either on the stove or in the microwave. Once melted add it to the glue and mix. Last slowly add in liquid starch and mix till slime forms. It does not take much starch. Once done it should not be hot and should be ready for play. We used a old cupcake candle and when we were done playing we used the candle jar for storage. As long as it is air tight the slime will last for a very long time!

Here is a video showing how I made it~ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZPjYJMTJXu4

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!
