CFB #3: Valentines Celebration---Countdown Continued!

Today was our Valentines Celebration at Camp for Babies.  It was a bunch of fun!  After a quick treat exchange we did a lot of playing together.  We had some yummy snacks (supplied by Mike, including, ahem, Mommy juice, AKA raspberry champagne drinks), and made a big fun mess with this:

Valentines Sensory Bin (many of these out there on the web, but my inspiration was from Mommy and Me Bookclub)

Inside: dry kidney beans and rice, and lots of V-day swag---cups, cookie cutters, confetti, erasers, noise makers, rose petals---fun treaures for burying and finding, filling and spilling!

Still digging in!

Even Mike had some fun...

And here's a clip of the kiddos enjoying:

We also *tried* to make some Valentines shakers (idea from No Time for Flashcards), but the sensory box was too much fun.  So the mommies did most of the decorating.  The kiddos did enjoy adding the bells and pom-poms!  But they were fun, nonetheless:

Two paper plates, decorated the outsides.  The heart cut-out has a plastic bag lining it to seal it up and create a "window" to the inside of the shaker.  We filled them with pom-poms and jingle bells and hot-glued them together!
And, just because it's a super-cute picture...

Waiting for Cate!
