Lucky Oatmeal

I bought two containers of oatmeal a while back, thinking I would use it for Christmas cookies, etc.  I never made the Christmas cookies.  Jeremy kept asking me what I was going to do with all that oatmeal.  I wasn't sure.  AJ and I made a batch of oatmeal raisin cookies, but thats as far as it went-again. 

I had an idea for the containers right away. 
 I emptied the oatmeal into a storage container and made AJ this:

What is it?  It's a bolster.  AJ's PT and OT use them during his therapy sessions.  His PT had asked us to have him practice stepping over things.  Well, here we go. Not only that, but its smaller than a traditional bolster, which works for AJ's smaller size and its much cheaper!

Now for the oatmeal. 

When I saw the St. Patty's Day decor
at Michaels, I thought... 

Sensory Bin!
Guess what, I still have oatmeal!

  1. Oh I can't wait to meet you! Can we plan a whole day together of just letting the boys play while I "steal" all your great ideas! I've been using Aiden's sand/water table as a sensory table, but you know how much it takes to fill that dang thing up?! haha!
