*By the way, almost everything came from Dollartree. I love my child but there is no reason to spend a fortune on these things when I do not have to.
With this sensory bag, I squirted some hair gel into a baggie that I had drawn on, and added some food coloring, red and yellow again (now what color does that make?).
I added in some of the spaghetti from the day before, and some pumpkin seeds. Then I use packing tape around all 4 sides to adhere it to our window. I love it because it really does look like pumpkin guts, which is my favorite part of carving a pumpkin.
Miller was napping when I did this. After he woke up, I carried him into the kitchen to get something and he leapt out of my arms to get at it. He loved it! (Sorry, I could not catch him actually playing with it for a picture).
It is not a toy he will sit and play with for hours at a time, but one he will revisit over and over again. Our past sensory bags we have left up for a few weeks but I am not sure the spaghetti will last that long.
It looks like the activities I have for the rest of the month are following the cycle I was mentioning. I am excited to see how Miller does with next weeks.
BTW, This was my due date last year. I feel like after 8.5 months of that number being burned in my brain, it will be stuck in there forever with Miller's birthday.
