Toys in School


Image

I was sitting at a table in the library at school, studying for my algebra test today when I felt like I needed a tissue; I usually have one in my pocket. I stuck my hand in my jacket pocket and felt something a little different than what I usually have in there; normally it’s keys, cell phone, and tissues. But what I found was a toy air plane, one that my daughter just got for Christmas this past Saturday. I smiled and laughed, thinking of my little girl, she likes to grab toys in the morning, hoping that she can keep them at daycare to play with. Most of the time I get the teacher to confiscate them and put them in her cubby or I can either get my daughter to leave them in the car or take them before I leave her at daycare.

She loves to play with cars (Hot Wheels), but her class doesn’t have many cars to play with. Actually they don’t have that many toys to play with and her class is a large one with eighteen toddlers. Is it selfish or terrible that I feel like donating a bunch of cars, trains, and trucks just for the little kids in her class to play with and/or so she also has something to play with?

This Friday I’ll be going through all of her toys and taking out all of the old ones that she’s outgrown and donating them to the daycare; I’ve already asked the daycare if they would like for me to donate her old toys to them and they are more than happy to receive them. My youngest sister will be doing the same with her daughter’s toys. Most daycares are usually more than happy to receive such a donation. I’ve wanted to do this for the longest time, but haven’t had the ‘time’ to do it. This isn’t so my daughter could play with her old toys at daycare, it’s to make room for the new toys she’s about to get for her birthday (in a week and a half) and Christmas; mostly to get rid of the toys she no longer plays with and has outgrown.

If you have ever wanted to go through your child’s or children’s toys and sort out the old ones, you can donate them to any daycare. Just call and ask, majority of them will probably say yes. This also includes school supplies (crayons, construction paper, etc.).

    Excellent blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on
    everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for
    a paid option? There are so many options out there that
    I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any tips? Kudos!

      Try to write daily..on anything. I always look for free creative writing courses in the newspaper..my local library offers one every other Thursday. It’s very helpful and it brings out the inner creativeness. WordPress is a free site, so def go with using a free site if you chose to post your stuff or a sample of your stuff. Hope these tips are helpful!
