Because of the extreme heat in our area, the children at our daycare have been pinned inside for several weeks. It's beginning to wear on everyone, the teachers, the kids, and me! Our teachers have used up every idea that they can think of to keep the kids busy, but ideas are waning thin. With that in mind I was thinking it might be a good idea to purchase some new games and puzzels for our classrooms.
I don't know how long it's been since you shopped for games and/or puzzels but they're not cheap! Saturday my daughter-in-law took me thrift store shopping for these items. Did I mention she is sort of a thrift store queen?!? By the time she showed me her favorite stops I had about 20 to 25 new games and puzzels loaded up in my car. My total for the bonanza.....a whopping $31.00. I was over-joyed with the finds, and even more over-joyed with the price.
Have you been thrift store shopping lately?
