I'm a garage sale hound. Over the last few weeks, I have had some great finds. One was a retiring teacher, where I scored a ton of books. The other was a family who had probably 30 games for sale, including a few games for E. I bought her the Cootie Bug game and Don't Break the Ice. Before playing the new games comes the cleaning. Typically, I am the one doing the cleaning. But, on this day, I decided that E might get a kick out of cleaning the parts.
Armed with an old toothbrush, a big tub of soapy water, and lots of towels (fabric ones, not the paper ones you can see on the table) she got busy.
And, she stayed busy...for close to an hour. She LOVED cleaning the parts of the game, and it helped her to anticipate playing the game even more. She had a ton of fun cleaning and eventually playing the game. This garage same find was definitely worth the $2.00 I spent!!
