Barnyard Sensory Play
This Barnyard Sensory play bin was so much fun! I set this up while Brody was out , and when he got home he was so excited to start playing. We have been loving sensory play recently and who doesn’t love a barnyard theme?!
I hope you follow me on instagram. I post way more play ideas, workouts, recipes ect. Id love to connect with you!
Barnyard Sensory play how to:
what you need
- green colored rice
- mud – cornstarch, water, coco powder
- Tupperware or bowls for “grass” & “mud”
- farm animals
- a tractor
- wash bucket to clean the animals to extend play
To make the grass add some rice and green paint ( I use Brodys paint ) to a plastic bag. Shake/mix it all till the rice is covered then let it dry .
To make the mud add a cup of cornstarch and a few tsp of coco powder to a bowl , slowly add water and mix till you get the consistency of mud. This will get hardish but still wet and thick once you stop moving it.
Next add your grass, mud and farm animals/ tractors to your tray and let the fun begin!
To extend the play even longer add a bin of soapy water to wash the animals . Brody played for over and hour, he had a blast!
Stress Free Pregnancy Workout Plan
Today I am sharing with you my stress free pregnancy workout plan ( and what I did with Brody )
Every Sunday after I make my weekly menu & shopping list I plan my workouts for the week. I have been aiming for 4-5 workouts a week . If for some reason I miss one ( which has happened a lot more with baby number 2 ! ) I just use that workout for next week.
With Brody I was doing crossfit and workouts from beachbody . So there wasn’t much for me to plan. I followed the 21 day and 21 day extreme workouts and did the workout of the day when I went to crossfit.
Now with baby number two I’m doing my own workouts from home. Some I make up and others I find online ( I share them every Sunday! ) I usually do one to two leg days, one upper body day, a cardio/hiit day and a total body day and that will be my weekly schedule . I search instagram, pinterest and youtube for workouts when I don’t want to make up my own.
Planning the workouts on Sunday helps to keep me organized and prepared. Knowing what to do ahead of time makes life so much easier . If I am bored of my workouts or totally stumped then I jump onto BOD and do one of the workouts from there. When I do that I usually add in total body from 21 day fix or a booty day from 80 day obsession. This helps me to not become bored.
My advice for a stress free pregnancy workout plan is to actually sit down and plan! Write everything out in a calendar, even if its weekly like me. It’s always nice seeing what to do and then being able to check your workouts off when you finish them . As your pregnancy progresses you are going to have to modify so plan too far ahead .
