CONNECT WITH DANIELLE
I’m a wife and momma on the daily and bouquets of flowers from Trader Joes are my love language. I'm a wanna be cooking show host. You can probably find me watching Bravo TV with an iced coffee in hand. I'm a big fan of brunch with the girls and ice cream dates with my guys. I love encouraging others with words and have a heart for serving.

Hudson has been obsessed with the ocean, sea animals and sea life ever since we took him to the Monterey Bay Aquarium this past Summer. When I picked up the book 1,000 Things Under the Sea I knew I wanted to create an activity for Hudson to be able to match the sea creatures and learn more about them.
Sensory bins are the most amazing toddler tool in my life. And they take about 5 seconds to set up if you have whats needed. It was perfect to create space for independent play time. Sensory activities are full of ways kids can learn about textures, sounds, smells, and colors. you can easily make a sensory bin using items you may already have around your house and yard.
The sensory bin was so much fun, he quietly played all afternoon with it!
I dyed white rice with blue food coloring and dried it on a cookie sheet. I used a shallow plastic bin and filled it with the dyed rice and buried sea animals for him to dig up! He loved it! Then he matched the sea animal to the book.
