My mother-in-law is awesome and came over Friday morning to watch the girls so I could have some alone time. Even though it was raining, I still decided to head out to a couple garage sales. One was a fluke but this second one was fabulous! TONS of prek and kindergarten learning tools and books!
Brylee is really into Curious George right now, so I was excited to find 2 new Curious George coloring books ($0.25/each) and a new puzzle ($0.50). The Preschool Almanac book was $1 and is packed with great ideas and crafts for each month of the year.
Believe it or not, we don’t own Chicka Chicka Boom Boom yet, so I picked up this one in great condition for $0.50. I read a lot of Richard Scarry growing up and have a huge fondness for these books. This treasury was $1 in excellent condition.
The two games in the middle were great finds at $2 each. One is a shape/color BINGO game and the other a Fisher Price Go Fish game (interactive, not the card game). Both are perfect for her to play right now!
I also found a pair of Fiskars preschool scissors for $0.50 (not pictured). We have one pair but with multiple children, it’s good to have a second pair handy!
This box is awesome! I haven’t quite delved into it yet, but it’s Alligators to Zucchini: 20 Early Literacy Games from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, a curriculum company. It’s brand new and filled with manipulatives, word cards, and a teacher’s guide. I got it for $25. I wasn’t sure if it was a good deal, but the price I found for it online says it’s worth over $500. (Which is a bit ridiculous I think but it’s from the same curriculum company our public schools use and I know that stuff is pricey.) So I think I made a good decision. I can’t wait to open it up and use it with Brylee!
I could have bought so. much. more. at that sale but we are on pretty limited funds right now. I think for $33 (I think that’s what I spent total) I got some great things to use with Brylee when starting preschool next year!
