I figured what with the kids’ interests changing so often and our needs as well that I would create a wish list for both myself and the world around us. I know how difficult it can be to shop for gifts and find that having a running list gives me the freedom to watch for sales and then be prepared when the events come around! So here goes! The newest items are in red 🙂
Any sort of manipulatives for math or reading
Summer toys of any sort
Perler beads – melting beads in bulk! (We cannot purchase them off the site here in Canada, have to go through Michaels)
Magic Schoolbus Boardgames
The Insecto-Files by Helaine Becker – Maple Tree Press 2009
backpacks – for each boy to take on our homeschool trips, etc.
jeans – I figure size 5T for Emanuel or bigger… 6 or 7T for the boys – we NEVER have enough pants!
