We had a couple other errands though to do. The kids are in a club through our homeschool group called Kids 4 Peace. Each month they learn more about our planet and its inhabitants. They learn about friendship and helping others. It's a fun group! But Lydia is also a Daisy Scout in a newly formed group in our homeschool. All homeschoolers...it's great! Well needless to say there are alot of of the Girl Scouts that are also members of the Kids 4 Peace group. So this Thursday the two groups will have a combined field trip to the Humane Society. This week we will be baking homemade dog biscuits to take for all the puppies and today I took the kids to Goodwill to purchase some blankets to donate also. I let them each pick out a blanket. I wanted to keep them involved more. Hoping that it makes a bigger impression on them. Doubtful, but I'm trying.
Well while we were there I was checking out the board games. I can usually get good deals on games there. Today was no exception.
I have been wanting this game for a long time, but the $25.00 price tag could be justified. (Of course now that I have looked at it...I would've paid the money for it!) Plus shipping though because it can only be ordered here.
Ultimate Deal of the day-----------Almost New $4.00!!!!
I see the conclusion of our Community Helpers unit next week!!!
Found a bag of Nuddles---$3.00---I have a pattern book that the girls can "color" with these. But they just love playing with these.
Found a geography game from Educational Insights. It's kind of like Hot Dots Cards.......$3.00
This is a fun one for the girls. Easy adding for a kindergartener learning math facts!! Retail originally around $24.00 (this is in a metal box).........Only $6.00. And it's like new!
I also found this cute metal bucket for $1.00. Here I am creating a Montessori paint match game for the girls. Total cost.....$1.00 for bucket, $2.00 clothespins, spray adhesive (used a little), and free paint chip samples from the store. I made 75 clips tonight. They all store in the bucket! So cool. I will post more pictures when we do the activity. (I didn't figure the cost pizza in the cost....but it worked great tonight. Can I count that as reusing resources even though I was using spray adhesive?:)...)
I was so excited with the good deals today. I love Goodwill. I wish they would've been a little better in the store. This was a quick trip through in order. Stores do not work well for kids with sensory issues. Oh well.....
