Fall sensory bin for all ages! How to and more

It has been a long time sense I have been on here but I am happily back!
We have recently took a trip to our local dollar store and sense it has been awhile sense my kids last sensory bin I figured to try one out for fall and see if it is something they are still into. I now have one in second grade and one in  kindergarten  and the days fly by. So yesterday when we had a little down time I brought out the bin and man they were so happy! I realized my kids loved this and I... kind of.... felt bad I stopped making these for them. So without anymore hesitation here is our fall bin!~
We included~(all from the dollar store)
Fake pumpkins
Different fall decor
fake beaded corn
hay
colored straw
potpourri

Please note~ Everything I included in my bin was safe for my older kids. If you have younger childern try these ideas instead~
fall toys (like little people)
Big decor that they can not fit into their mouths
real fall leaves 
and make sure to always watch children when they are playing with anything  that could be a chocking hazard.

After play was done nothing went to waste...well the dog got to the hay but everything  else went into another place to give this room a fall feel. :)
Remember babies, kids, and even adults learn threw play, making a mess is learning. 
~Relax, have fun, and enjoy life~...they grow up quick

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!
