As room parent, I was also responsible for preparing a basket for a silent auction. Most rooms had a theme for a basket. If everybody brought in just one item for the basket, you can imagine they get big fast for a class of 30 students! Hank's classroom basket theme was Disney Mania. I am not sure what to attribute our large basket size to -- the theme was very appropriate for a classroom full of 5-year-olds. The Disney theme is pretty easy to do, with so many items available at the dollar store, and people may have already had items at home in their gift bins. Or maybe it was just the great comunication letting folks know about how to participate with the basket activity, lol.
|There were 8 of these boxed puzzles. I bought a metal lunch box to present them in. That plus a few items from the - you guessed it - dollar store was my contribution to the basket.|
|I put stuff in as I got it, so did not lay everything out to get a picture. Should have got one before wrapping, though.|
