Touch & Feel Spring Suncatchers for kids!

http://happilyevermom.com/2014/04/14/spring-suncatchers/

My one-year-old and I had a blast going on a nature walk together and then displaying our collection in this squishy bag.  It's not only a great way for babies to observe plants and flowers, but it's also a gorgeous suncatcher in the window!!

My one-year-old adored this super simple game!  In fact, I heard clanging sounds and found him playing with this again in the morning.  So much fun!!

Make a Touch and Feel Board for Baby
We loved making this simple sensory board for my one-year-old.  He spent the entire afternoon exploring the textures and kissing himself in the mirror!

Giant Homemade Glow in the Dark Floor Piano

The theme for this month's Light & Reflections Series was music and movement so I made this giant floor piano for my kids.  We used it to learn about music, explore colors, get active, and learn about left versus right.  

Find out how we made it glow here: http://www.andnextcomesl.com/2014/03/homemade-glowing-floor-piano-light.html

Glow in the Dark Egg Shakers

We love making our own instruments and these glow in the dark shakers are so easy to make!  They are gorgeous when the lights are off, too.  My kids have had a blast using these even when the glow sticks stopped glowing the next day!
