We just received our package, and - Wow! - we were spoiled!
Just to clue everyone in, my son, Jase, is 3 years old, and this swap was for him.
Here's the entire package - it was hard to fit it all into one picture! (eek - Ignore our horribly messy craft/toy room in the background)
It's made up of..*deep breath*.. A book about Opposites using animals (my son is animal obsessed), a Create-your-own-Adventure with foam stickers book, which he has already started on, as you can see in the picture, some fun markers and smelly crayons (which, by the way, smell of the craziest things, such as "Baseball mitt", "Grandma's perfume", and "Koala tree". Have you ever smelt a Koala tree? Now you can.), a fun cigar "treasure box" as Jase has named it, a multi-subject notebook with his name and giraffes (his favorite!) on the front, a foam number puzzle, an Elephant and mittens (either knitted or crocheted, sorry I can't tell the difference!), and lacing cards.
I squealed when Jase pulled out the lacing cards - I have been wanting to either make him or buy him some of these lately, so that he can work on his hand-eye coordination and finger dexterity. He will definitely get good use out of these! Also, the E for Elephant plushie was perfect, as we have been doing a letter every day. He's been carrying this around with him everywhere since opening the package.
Last, he was confused as to why he got mittens in the summer time. I told him that we will use them once it starts getting cooler out and he was still confused, so I cleared things up a bit and let him play with the web cam.
It's hard to tell because it's all piling up on the back of the chairs in this picture, but snow falls from the top of the screen and piles up on different surfaces - you can catch it in your hand, let it pile up on your head, or just wave your hands around and make a blizzard of snowflakes. He definitely is looking forward to using the mittens for real, now
Thanks so much, Karen!
