bean sensory bin for valentines day

Today is the first time we used beans in a sensory bin, totally worth it!
We made this bin using red and white beans for valentines day. It was really fun, my kids loved it. They poured them, measured them, and sorted through them by color. 
In the end they added more toys and played with the beans as if they where rocks. 
Beans is one sensory bin filler you can use over and over and is cheap to buy so next time you pass by them pick some up!
This is one of many ideas going around the 31 Days of Sensory Play!

Home made hermit crab food (that kids can help with)

Recently we adopted 4 hermit crabs and after reading up a little more on them we learned they like us, need a healthy diet and that store bought hermit crab food can be down right deadly..This gave me a good idea of showing my daughter what a healthy diet for hermit crabs is and at the same time talk about what is healthy for us to eat. I talked to her about how store brand food is not the best things for the crabs to eat just like "fast food" is not for us....I went on to tell her some healthy things that we eat that the crabs can eat too..She was a little surprised all the things that we can share with our new crab buddies. So with a watchful eye we started cutting some things up to dehydrated and make our own hermit crab food.(great for practicing cutting skills!) This is what the turn out came to look like. A whole bin of food that should last awhile. We added  ~oats ~dehydrated apples ~dehydrated peaches ~dehydrated tomato ~dehydrated carrots  ~organic pa
