MULTI EDUCATIONAL TABLE PRACTICALLY AT NO COST
Mommy and I were trying to think of a way that Bobo and Sissy could sit on the floor and work at waist level . Bobo loves to put out his THOMAS THE TRAIN mat and play with his trains. Sissy loves to make puzzles and she needed something to be able to start and then come back a little while later to finish one. They both love to build with LEGOS and other fun activities. Mommy looked around and saw that she had 2 stackable shelves that had canvas storage containers in them. So we took them down and put them side by side. We could not believe that when put that way the mat fit perfectly! The next problem was that they did have corners so we then tried to think of a way to cover these. Auntie Lala thought of a round sort of table and Mommy and I decided to see if we had one that we could use.
We found a brand new cardboard dressmakers cardboard that fit onto a table and was used by someone to sew items. The 4 rectangles folded so that you could 1,2 3 or 4 rectangles at a time. We opened it to 2 rectangles and it fit perfectly over these 2 shelves with a little overhang that covered the corners.
Auntie Lala also bought American Flag stickers, The Liberty Bell, The Constitution and more stickers. These will be put under the contact paper and will be used once a week to discuss what these mean to us and our history. We will use dry erase markers to measure draw etc. and then easily rub off.
So not only is this a great item for homeschooling it is also a practically no cost and shows when you take the time to think you will find a way to solve your problem. They couldn't wait to use it.
