(Sorry, guys... this has been in my drafts for about 2 weeks, waiting for me to add photos. Just got around to uploading them tonight. Hope you enjoy.... I know my son has, as he LOVES writing notes on the Christmas tags.)
Ahhh.... I love a good deal, and NOTHING makes me happier than great educational finds in the post-Christmas clearance sales!
So, this past week, I've been able to find some great bargains....
At the local junk store, I found these packs of folding Christmas tags for a dime a piece.
They seem pointless, yes? Absolutely not! For a little boy who is constantly drawing pictures on full-sized sheets of paper -- and then must fold it in half before handing it to you; they are perfect. Plus, I believe they will also perfectly fit his current desire to "make books" daily.
And look at these little wonders... I believe they are for saving money for Lent. I picked them up $0.02 each! (at our local Lifeway Christian Store) I'm planning on using them when we skipcount quarters. Or, I may make an activity where he has to put the labels/money in order, find patterns,etc. ... oh, the possibilities are endless! I really like that they count up by $0.25 to $10, plus the tactility of physically putting the quarters into the slots.
So, have you found any great finds this week?
