Nail polish dipped eggs

Room temperature water (has to be room temperature and it is easier to do this in a bowl then a cup) 
nail polish in different colors
plastic eggs
A place to let them dry

Firs thing to do is drop some nail polish in the water, if the water is not room temperature then it will sink and you need it to float to work. Try using a tooth pick and swirl around the nail polish to get a different effect. Once you have a pattern you like dip the eggs on the top of the water and roll them around till covered. We tried to use gloves for this but it ended up very slippery and found just wiping hands between dipping eggs worked just find for clean up. Set out to dry in a well vented room and that is it. Me and my daughter both loved this craft and wished we had more spring colors to work with but really they still came out beautiful! Highly recommend for any older kid, they make great room decor.

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!
