I mentioned in my last post how I found a Steve Spangler science kit at Goodwill. I also bought a Mancala game mostly because I thought the kids would like to play with the pieces.
The kids love to go to Goodwill too. We give them each $2.00 allowance every Friday and they have learned that it can go a long way at the thrift store. Eaden saved up $10 for a new rainbow loom because she broke hers, but Taven and Naia were eager to spend. Taven bought two toy guns and Naia bought a purse, sunglasses, and a pretend phone.
I found this awesome magnetic calendar with a dry erase board for 3.99. The kids LOVED it! I also found some almost new (not in age) pastels for .99 cents and a 20 year old clay kit for .99 cents. The clay is as good as new. We are always on the lookout for VHS movies and we bought the wooden shoe (pictured) so that the kids could work on their tying skills.
Goodwill is also really good for paper products. Binders, paper, stationary, stickers, etc.
