Counting Acorns

I love when my son comes up with learning activities on his own. He lined up acorns in a row and started counting them this morning.

Baby's 1st Sensory Bottle

Today I made my first sensory toy for my baby girl! Here is a simple sensory bottle using a Voss plastic water bottle and sequins. Just shake it up and watch the sequins spin like a tornado! The bottle thrilled her little mind and helped me out at dinner time. These bottles are inexpensive and very simple to create. Stay tuned for new sensory bottle ideas!

Sand & Sequin Digger Truck Tray

Here is a fun sensory experience for kids who love to dig in the sand. My son has been enjoying this activity for weeks now. I mixed sand and sequins in a small tray and gathered all of our diggers. My son just loves driving, digging, and dumping over and over with his trucks in this tray. So much fun! Great idea for a rainy day activity.
