We are informed by our teacher that the children are making stocking to hang for their holiday party and could we please provide a small toy or something to go in them. We have 23 kids in our class. (!!!) She suggests that the dollar store is a good place to look.
We go to the dollar store.
Even there it is hard to find anything we like that comes in packs with multiples. (Since I am not spending $23 at $1 per thing.)
We look up and down the Christmas aisle.
The toy aisle.
The crafting aisle.
I joke, “You could give your friends rocks.”
He replies, “Yeah, jingle bell rocks.”
But then he gets thinking about it and decides that’s what he wants to do. He chose not to buy the small sleigh bells to glue onto the rocks. (a little too obvious, I suppose…)
So we buy some rocks.
And we draw on them.
And they are awesome! Even though we chose not to write “Jingle Bell” on them. Ha!
Don’t be surprised if you get rocks from me for Christmas from now on. In fact, every holiday. ♥
