Early in the year I happened across several new in the box games & project items at the thrift store that I picked up and have been pulling out when the "i need a project" demands become to much to handle. At that moment, they have been lifesavers. Thank you Play-dough and Tri-ominoes for ending up at the thrift store for me to buy.
I recently tried to convince my kids that THIS would be fun to do. It ended up to be a disastrously messy event and the director was impatient with the photo subject.
