March Sensory Bin…It’s out of this world!


Our Sensory bin this month is super fun not just for little darling but my almost 10 year old was all over it too!

I kept it pretty simple as it has been a really busy week in the Tog household. The base is black beans which I purchased at sprouts in the bulk section. I also grabbed a scoop of red lentils to have a little bit of color in the bin and I thought the orange hue worked well with the theme.


The usual suspects are in the box are: scoops, funnel and ice cube tray. The cool add ons for our space theme are glow in the dark stars and planets from the dollar store,some bouncy balls to resemble planets as well as a round aluminum tin. We threw in some monster figurines we had lying around as the “aliens”. I really like the add on of the tin as it bring sound as one of the senses this month. The black beans being poured on the tin can be quite loud so if your child has a sensitivity they are still working through this may be best to leave out. My kiddos love that fact that it is loud and I just tell myself it’s better than the sound of the tv in the background 😉



Again the skills that are being developed are transferring, sorting, imaginary play and we are working on counting!

Contest Winner Boudoir Session

Glam and I were so happy to work with Ashley. She was our contest winner for the pinup model for a day giveaway. She was not only gorgeous but so fun and easy to work with. I love that her outlook was that she was there for us to get what shots we needed while getting back in front of the camera herself. Thank you Ashely for participating in the contest and being such a wonderful client!

The Learning Flower!

I am so excited to introduce all of you to the learning flower. Before I moved to Colorado I was extremely fortunate to live in the Roosevelt Row district downtown which is home to so many creative people. One of which has shared this great learning tool. I ordered one of the prototypes about 2 weeks ago and so far it is a hit in my house with Little Darling. You’re probably now like OK  I get it you like it but What is a learning flower?

Well, its not a puzzle or a chart, but a link to independent self discovery. It hooks on the toddlers desire for knowledge and provides an interactive experience with education, like what you would get from a children’s museum. It has found a spot in our daily home preschool flow. Currently Little darling is at the stage of matching colors which is great! But I can see how this will stay in our preschool repertoire for quite some time as next she will move into numbers and then we still have the whole alphabet available as well!

Or contact if you have any questions. An important note is that it is still in the early stages and with that is hand cut vinyl magnets on a round baking sheet.

If you have little ones I really do suggest it… also what a great gift for a toddler rather than another toy that will just make it’s way to a bin.
