Remorseful or Resourceful With Target Stash?


Okay, now I have to justify my greedy behavior at Target. I must find clever little activities for all that I bought. This is not bad for starters but my brain needs to keep working. As I think of things I will post them and if you have a brilliant idea- share. Would you like these worksheets?  Get them right here. The kids will rubber stamp the matching capital letter and hopefully they will not be covered in ink. Any other ideas? If you take them please leave a comment and become a follower.

I love that these stamps have a zero. That is impressive. These might be hard to find (I bought all of them) but hunt through the bins. They are not always easy to see. Not bad for now and obviously they could be used for any number activity, especially for the child who is struggling with fine motor skills. That's why you need to be five when you start school. Woops... that slipped out of my mouth. If you would like these Grab these right here Please leave a comment.

Awesome:) That activity was whipped up pretty fast-I better get on the ball! I'm going to make up something where my child has to use the stamps to spell color words in the correlating ink color. Also, stamp and spell shape words in the correlating shape (might have to provide the actual shape as an outline). I am inspired-thanks!

Life as I know it...

Love these...thank you so much for sharing!! I also agree on being 5...it's no fun (nor is it easy) when you don't turn 5 until Sept. 30 and trying to follow directions like the child turning 6 October 2!

Madison said...

I have been so jealous of all the great dollar deals I have seen people posting about so I dragged my husband to Target today and spent way more money than I should have. I love it! Can't wait to use all my new things.

Love Stamping..
You are so right about being 5..but when your school does and all day program then the parents want the "free daycare" and they don't think about the long term affect it will have on their children:0

Thank you so much. I went to a different Target last night and got the letter stamps. I also found TONS of Seuss stuff but not the cups. I did however find pins, pencils, stickers, erasers, elastic bracelets and bookmarks. I think I am now thoroughly stocked up for March. The worksheets will be a great addition to the letter stamps.

kathy said...

As usual, you have the best ideas! I love the letter stamping sheets.Thank you so much! Are you going to share the number stamping sheets also? I plan to go to Target today!

Thank you so much for the freebies! I also spent way too much at Target today! I didn't find the stamps! I guess that means I'll have to go back! I love reading your blog! Thanks for always sharing! Will you post a link for the number stamp pages? Thanks again!

Boo Hoo,

I just got back from Target and they didn't have any of these items. Now I have to drive to the two neighboring towns and see if they have them. I like the activity sheets that you created to utilize the stamps.

These are WONDERFUL! I'm hoping to go to target this weekend to see if I can find these stamps! I think I may have an alphabet set but I've not seen a number set, here's hoping!

Thank you so much for sharing the worksheets! They will be a great review for the first of the year!

Fran as usual wonderful activities. I'm so jealous of your target though. I have now looked at targets in Michigan and Wisconsin and haven't found any of the fun stuff everyone is finding. Keep up the great work.

Mrs.Capps said...

Thank you so much!!! I love all of your activities.

Hadar said...

I went to THREE Targets and I finally found the number stamps! They only had 2, but better than nothing!!! I was also thinking it would be fun for the kiddos to make equations with the stamps and then trace over the numbers. They are just too cute!
