Sometimes, it’s just the simplest things that can turn an ordinary day into a fun one. During Valentine’s week, we had a Valentine’s sensory bin that was made with things I already had around the house and on one day, I made the kids a heart theme muffin tin lunch which they loved!
- -heart shaped sandwich (kids liked the “eat me” toothpick!)
- -red pepper heart
- -pomegranate yogourt with hot lips candy on top
- -ham wrap topped with heart shaped cheese and heart pick
- -cucumber hearts
- -heart shaped grape jello jigglers
Our Valentine’s Sensory Bin:
- pink Easter grass
- red, white and pink pompoms
- heart shaped cookie cutters of various sizes
- plastic jar opener
- white spoon
- heart rings
- pink bow
- heart pipe cleaners
- “Kiss Me” pick
- and a scented red candle.
I put in enough rings so that after their turn with the sensory bin, they can each keep one.
