Sensory bins are super easy to make and can keep kids entertained for hours. Here’s what you need to make a Halloween Sensory Bin of your own.

  • Rice (or beans) – I bought a 10 pound bag of white rice for $6.48 and a 4 pound bag of black beans for $4.57, at Walmart. With these amounts, i was able make 3 sensory bins.
  • Pumpkins (fake) – I bought a bag of small pumpkins for $3 at Target, and bought the bigger pumpkins at Walmart for $0.98 each!
  • Assorted Halloween items – Stretchy eyeballs ($1.98 Walmart), Skeletons ($0.98 Walmart), Bat Rings ($0.98), and Flutes ($0.98 Walmart)
  • Plastic Bins w/ lids – I bought a pack of 4, for under $10, at Walmart.

I poured half the bag of rice in one bin, and the other half in another bin. Then i added several Halloween items to each bin.

I poured the entire bag of black beans into one bin, and added Halloween items to that bin as well.

My kids, all 5 of them, really enjoyed playing with these Halloween Sensory Bins.

One of the great things is that the rice, beans, and bins are all a one time purchase. Just change up the items you add to your sensory bins based on holidays/seasons/etc..

Anniversary Box

Hi Guys!

This month my husband and i will be celebrating 15 years of marriage. So i thought it would be fun to do a marriage post every Monday for the rest of August.

Today i’m going to share with you, this idea that came to me a few years ago, after reading a sexy stocking post from The Dating Divas.

An Anniversary Box.

Here’s the general idea, you and your spouse fill up the anniversary box with fun stuff for the both of you to enjoy together (movie tickets, lotions, dvd’s, massage oils, etc.) and then on your anniversary you open it up together.

I just used an old Bath & Body Works box i had laying around, but you could really use anything you want.

Since our anniversary is the 21st of August, we would start filling up our anniversary box on August 1st, and by the 21st we should have plenty of goodies inside.

I hope you enjoy this idea, if you try it be sure to let me know!
