This year all my kids are actually going with a theme. This hasn’t happened since my oldest 2 were very little, and I was able to dress them up how I wanted.

Fall Photos {Kids}

I found the cutest idea for fall photos on Pinterest last month, and my Hubby, just being the amazing person that he is, helped me recreate that idea.

Isn’t this the cutest little setup?! My Hubby built the stand using some free wood he had. I bought the crates at Michael’s when they were on sale, and my oldest son stained them for me.

My Hubby also found some old rusty chains to add a little something extra to this setup.

I bought the hay bale at Walmart, i think it was like $5.

The pumpkins i bought at a local grocery store.

I used some orange craft paint to write ‘PUMPKINS’ at the top.

Of course even our puppies had to get their picture taken.

I think these turned out great, i just wish the lighting would have been a little bit better on this particular day.

Halloween Sensory Bin

Hi Guys!

Today i’m sharing something really fun, a Halloween sensory bin!!

halloween sensory bin

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.

IMG_4946

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..

I hope you enjoyed today’s blog post. Have you made a sensory bin before? What’s your favorite items to add to yours?
