Jello Ocean Sensory Bin

Standard

We love the Ocean around here, so we make a lot of Ocean theme bins and crafts.  This by far was one of our favorites!

I used Blue Raspberry Jello for the water.

This bin has 2 regular size packages and was prepared according to package directions

When the jello set I just added some of the shells from vacation and some of the sea life stuff we had

This was a huge hit with both munchkins, which doesn’t happen often, considering they are 7 years apart.

We also explored the texture, feel, and smell of the “water”

After the jello started to warm up we again reviewed the texture, feel, and smell of our “water”

DIY Button Letter Ocean Theme

Standard

My sons room is done in Ocean theme, well not at the moment because we are staying at my dad’s during this deployment, but at home it is in Ocean theme.  Button letters are flying all over pinterest and I am not sure who made the first one, but I know they are cute, so I decided to make one myself

monogram button letter

This can be done in almost any theme you will need:
Buttons (I used blue)
A frame (I purchased mine at the dollar tree)
A wooden decal (I used a fish)
A piece of thick paper (I used white)
A pencil
Glue (I used craft glue)
Hot glue gun or other type of strong glue

To make it:

Take the white paper and use the pencil to draw an stencil or outline of what you want your letter to look like
glue buttons all in your stencil, taking care to cover your pencil lines
*hint-It is better to start with the big buttons and fill in with smaller buttons
Put the paper inside of the frame but take out the glass
Hot glue the decal onto the frame where you think it looks good

That’s it!
