We are currently renovating our school room (basement)... so... we have been in Home Depot frequently as of late... and as we were wondering around the flooring section.. I noticed all sorts of fun samples... that literally said the word FREE on them! ... Right away I think of all the great projects and activities I can do with them...so... I totally stocked up!!!Ryleigh and Braeden both took a little while to explore the different textures in their baskets (which I purchased at Wegmans.... and you know how I feel about Wegmans (LOVE IT) )
They have everything from carpet, tile, wood and out door carpet samples to counter-top and paint colors... (I have used the Mickey Mouse Paint Colors many times)
We used some of the bumpy vinyl tiles to do some crayon rubbings.... both kids loved this... (then branched off into regular coloring...)
Look what else is completely free ... Mickey Mouse Paint Colors... seriously... Home Depot is like the best store ever!!!! We used these for matching and color recognition for Braeden and Colors in Spanish for Ryleigh...
