A few more weeks of summer … Go to a Thrift Store!!!!!!!!

I know we have a few more weeks of summer.  We all started out with grand plans with our kids but now we are to the point where we are looking for anything to keep them occupied!

Why not head to a Thrift Store and you will be Amazed at how much FUN you will have with them!

  • Come up with an idea, plan or treasure hunt!
  • Create a scavenger hunt!
  • (maybe even a budget)?
  • Find a Family Game…
  • Books
  • Recipes
  • Crafts .. paint a weird piece of pottery!
  • You never know what you will find but I can assure you its a Treasure Hunt!
  • (maybe they will find a thing or two for Back-to-School Shopping!)

  1. What fun finds! Makes me wish my kids were little again! I’m impressed by how neatly organized the games are (and the pants underneath them) in that one picture. I’ve never seen a thrift store that neat and clean. I’m a teacher, and we go back to school in 10 days. Don’t know where the summer went!

    • My kids are all teens so I KNOW we are missing out on all the fun little kid stuff but my teens still LOVE going to a thrift store and we always have the best time!!! They find the BEST stuff!

      • I wish my girls enjoyed thrifting. I’m sure they would if the thrift stores around here were as great as the ones you have. When I show them the things you find, they can’t believe it.
