Thrift Store Homeschooling ;)

Let me just tell you, if you do not hang out at Garage Sales and Goodwill stores you are missing out!! Puzzles bigger than the kids... $1.99 ! Fun with puzzles... and gymnastics... PRICELESS!
I bought this puzzle a while back and had no idea how fabulous it was. I did not even realize it was five foot long. I just knew that it was a puzzle (check) and it was insects, which we would eventually study (check). It was a floor puzzle (check)... any kind of puzzle at our house is a winner. Seriously, my kids would work puzzles all day long, if I would let them. I try to incorporate all our puzzles in with the lessons we are working on. It is the one thing I do not have to beg them to do! LOL! When I am out and about and spot a puzzle bargain I snatch it up and stick it in our stash. I have gotten a lot of them for quarters even!
Look at all the detail in this puzzle. We all loved it! It was a fabulous find and a wonderful surprise when we took it out to study Insects. And for whatever reason it sparked a bit of gymnastics in Sierra. She even rolled head first down the length of the puzzle.
Look at the size of this thing....
And Savannah had to get in a pic, too. Savannah said her favorite thing about this puzzle was trying to match the mommas and the babies. So cool to hear what they are thinking.
