A blog break give-away for the preschool classroom

by Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. on August 15, 2011

in National School Supply

While I am on my little blog break, I decided it would be a good time to go ahead and share this little give-away I have for you.

National School Supply sent me this wonderful set of colorful sand blocks. They didn’t send them to me to review – they sent them to me so I could have them for my classroom and in return I offered to host this give-away for you….

I am excited to add these blocks to my classroom. Today, I let Wy check them out…

As Wy played with the blocks he kept saying “I am building a castle!”

So here is how this give-away works. It is a little different so be sure to read carefully what you need to do…

  1. Go to the National School Supply Clearance Specials and select something you like from this section only of their website.
  2. Come back here and leave a comment telling me what item you would like to win from the clearance specials and the item you select will be what you will win should your name be drawn as the winner of this give-away.
  3. Be sure to look through each link under the Clearance Specials page as there are great things under every link.
  4. Make absolutely sure that you include a current email address with your comment so you can be notified if you win.
Other notes about this give-away…
  1. The last day to enter for this give-away is Thursday August 18, 2011 at 11:00pm EST.
  2. One winner will be chosen by random generator on Friday August 19, 2011.
  3. The winner will be notified by email and announced here on the blog on Saturday August 20, 2011.
  4. This give-away is only open to folks living in the U.S.A. (I apologize to those who are not from the U.S.).
  5. Only one entry per person is accepted.
  6. Should an email be sent out and the winner does not respond within 5 days, then an alternative winner will be selected.
  7. The winner’s email address will be shared with National School Supply so they can contact the winner to make shipping arrangements.

Good Luck and Thank You for Your Participation! 

Update: I’m sorry – but entries for this give-away are now closed.

I am excited about this! I would love to win the book, “The Inclusive Learning Center Book”. Being in early childhood special education, this would be a great add to my collection.

2 EllenM August 15, 2011 at 1:45 am

I’ve just moved down to pre-k from 1st grade and am lacking several things for my classroom due to budget constraints. I would LOVE any one of the play food sets under the Early Childhood section – but really liked the four basic food groups set. This would be a great starter set for my dramatic play area. Btw, those blocks are awesome! I was looking at those pretty closely too – I’m sure the kids will love them!

3 Melanie August 15, 2011 at 2:03 am

@EllenM … I have the basic food groups set. They are a little smaller than I realized when I purchased them but they are great! Each food group is in its own little wooden box so its makes it became a sorting activity as well. They are good quality, too!

4 Kristy Haight August 15, 2011 at 1:48 am

It’s a toss-up between the filled blocks and the jumbo-sized wooden puzzles. I think the blocks are it though. I love wooden toys and have been searching for some great blocks for ages. What a fun giveaway!

5 Joanie August 15, 2011 at 1:53 am

I think the “Sand Filled Rainbow Blocks” would be an excellent addition to my program. After providing 22 years of childcare, I think my little kiddos would really enjoy building with something as cool as those! Thanks so much, Joanie

6 Melissa Long August 15, 2011 at 1:53 am

Love the filled blocks! My little ones love blocks & right now we only have a set of foam ones. They would have a blast with the filled ones.

7 Melanie August 15, 2011 at 1:57 am

Wooden Vehicles and Traffic Signs 790009 $10.99

I’d like to have these for my block area. I left all of my blocks and vehicles at my last school when I moved as they had nothing and I figured they could use them more than me at the time. I love this site – thanks for another choice for classroom materials!

8 Margie Costello-Chevis August 15, 2011 at 1:57 am

I would love to win the wooden vehicles, all of the mulit-ethnic families, or the filled blocks. We are in need of these items in our classroom.

9 Margie Costello-Chevis August 15, 2011 at 2:00 am

The wooden vehicles and signs would be great…we are in need of them in our block area.

10 stephanie a. August 15, 2011 at 2:02 am

I’d so love the Hungry Hungry Hippos


because it so reminds me of my own childhood. Remember how games with the element of repetition, cause and effect, animals eating marbles (?), could be so intriguing! I also think the commercial made it look really fun and that has stuck with me. Marketing–grrr!!!

11 Sherry August 15, 2011 at 2:03 am

I would love to win the Sand or Crystal Bead filled Rainbow Blocks. I think the children would love these and find them interesting and fun to play and build with. Thank you for the chance to win!

12 stephanie martinez August 15, 2011 at 2:07 am

I would like to win the “Teaching Cash Register”.

13 Jessie Carpenter August 15, 2011 at 2:10 am

I would like to win the Shimmering Water filled Rainbow Blocks for my classroom. Thank you for the give-away!

14 Jennifer August 15, 2011 at 2:11 am

I love the water-filled rainbow blocks!! beautiful!
We play with our plain wooden blocks everyday, these would really add to the fun.

15 Amy August 15, 2011 at 2:12 am

I love the blocks too! I think I would choose some of the finger puppet, probably the one for “The Billy Goats Gruff” because I already have some fun stuff for that book.

16 Stefanie August 15, 2011 at 2:13 am

Great options to choose from. My classroom would benefit mostly from the Multi-Ethnic School Dolls. Hope we win. Thanks for hosting the give away.

17 valerie August 15, 2011 at 2:18 am

Oh the easy grip pegs and playpad have been on my wish list for a while now!

:) Valerie

18 Claudette Lindquist August 15, 2011 at 2:19 am

I would love the filled blocks! I am in the process of expanding the block area and activities in my classroom, and would love a set of these to encourage more imaginative play.

19 Sheryl August 15, 2011 at 2:31 am

WOW, so many options! I would love to win the filled blocks for my 2 and 3 year olds. I know they’d love them! http://www.nationalschoolsupply.com/group/FILLED-BLOCKS.htm

Thank you, Deborah!

20 Laura August 15, 2011 at 2:44 am

I would LOVE to have the foam magnetic lowercase letters for my class!

21 Tauna August 15, 2011 at 2:48 am

Thanks for the giveaway! We’d love the Quick Life Science Lab Kit K-2 for our homeschool!

Proverbialhomemaker at gmail dot com

22 Teacher Marji (Ericson) August 15, 2011 at 3:02 am

I would really like to have the “Teaching Cash Register” for my Best Friends classroom!

23 Jennifer Altman August 15, 2011 at 3:18 am

I think the filled blocks you have pictured would be awesome for my 2yo, we don’t have many blocks as we got rid of them before we moved b/c we had to down size and he loves to build, these would be great! Thanks

24 Lydia August 15, 2011 at 5:44 am

I would love the crystal filled wooden blocks. There are many other things that I like too.

25 lexie August 15, 2011 at 5:47 am

I like the multi-ethnic school dolls. Our center is trying to get NAEYC accredited and I think these dolls would be a great asset to our classrooms.

26 Holly Davis August 15, 2011 at 5:53 am

I too would love to have a set of the filled blocks. It would be a wonderful addition to my science center!

27 Vini aka Pooh! August 15, 2011 at 6:03 am

This sounds fun! I would pick the Sandwich-Making Box

28 Mary Pedersen August 15, 2011 at 6:26 am

I’d love the sand-filled rainbow blocks. Thanks for this great give-away and your great web-site! Mary

29 Sandra August 15, 2011 at 6:28 am

Would love to win the ‘Folding Horse Stable’!

Great idea!!!

30 Sheila Schlesinger August 15, 2011 at 6:31 am

I teach pre-k in a inner city urban environment. The fill blocks would make a great addition to my block area. I love open ended materials to encourage my students to use their imagination.

31 Angie Center August 15, 2011 at 6:33 am

What a great giveaway! I would choose the Teaching Cash Register. It would be a fun new addition to my classroom. Thanks so much!

32 Brenna August 15, 2011 at 6:46 am

I would love to win the sand-filled blocks. So cool and would be a different addition to the block center.

33 Mary August 15, 2011 at 6:46 am

I was glad to see that the sand filled blocks were in the clearance section. I would like to have those for my classroom.

34 Lynn Parker August 15, 2011 at 6:53 am

I would LOVE to win the colorful sand filled blocks. I have had the set on my daycare wish list for some time and seeing them on your post caught my eye. Thanks for the the chance to win them!

35 Laura August 15, 2011 at 7:22 am

I would love to have the rainbow sand-filled blocks! They would be a great addition to my block center and I really want to play with them, too!

36 Sharon August 15, 2011 at 7:22 am

The Rainbow Sand-Filled blocks would be a fantastic addition to the block center in my 3-year-old classroom!

37 Carrie Johnson August 15, 2011 at 7:24 am

What a great site to find! I would LOVE the Primary Math Resource Kit. I have been looking for the perfect math manipulatives, and this is just what I need!

38 Amy August 15, 2011 at 7:25 am

I’d love to have the sand filled blocks. They would be a great addition to our block center.

39 Jennifer Radtke August 15, 2011 at 7:26 am

I would love the filled blocks for my own home. But it would be nice to get some craft supplies to give to one of the girls’ classroom.

40 jessica August 15, 2011 at 7:30 am

I would love to have the foam lower case letters. I want to do a “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom” activity with my class this fall, and it would be perfect if I had lower case letters to use!

41 Sarah August 15, 2011 at 7:32 am

I would love the AlphaScope Microscope . I am a high school science teacher now teaching preschool :)

42 Susie August 15, 2011 at 7:39 am

What a fabulous give-away. We just finished our NAEYC and VSQI (new rating system in VA) and my classroom was lacking in multi-generational and multi-cultural items so I could definitely use Pretend & Play Asian Family ( 8 pc. Set) 791003. Thanks for getting us to look over this catalog. I’ll definitely share it with our purchaser!

43 katie keier August 15, 2011 at 7:43 am

Wow! Thanks for showing us this great website! I found LOTS of cool things for my classroom. If I win the contest, I would like the sand filled rainbow blocks – they are fabulous! I can see my kiddos using this for hours of imaginative play. Thanks for sharing the site!

44 Julee August 15, 2011 at 7:49 am

I hesitate to even choose the Crayon Carpet because it is the most expensive item on the list! But it would be a huge blessing to our little church-run preschool to have a new Circle Time rug.

45 Donna August 15, 2011 at 7:58 am

I would love to get the crystal bead filled blocks. I actually requested they be purchased for my classroom, but unfortunately, I didn’t get them. I would love to win them.

46 Carol P. August 15, 2011 at 8:01 am

I would love to have the sand filled blocks http://www.nationalschoolsupply.com/group/FILLED-BLOCKS.htm. I teach preschool and they would be a super addition to my classroom
Thank you so much.

47 Ruby August 15, 2011 at 8:02 am

Craftkids Scissors – 6 Pack of Assorted Scissors. I have 2 boys 12y and almost 5y they are always doing crafty things and these six scissors would be a great addition to our craft center.

Thank you for this great giveaway.

48 Angee Edenfield August 15, 2011 at 8:03 am

I would love the musical insturtments. I am starting a new classroom and they don’t have any music insturtments so these would be great. thank you

49 Greg August 15, 2011 at 8:12 am

I would absolutely love those filled blocks for my 2-3 room, but I guess I’m not alone there. Does living outside the US discount me though?

50 Janice August 15, 2011 at 8:15 am

I would really love the Learning Centers Bulletin Board Set. We have those blocks in our classroom and love them!

51 Lisa August 15, 2011 at 8:18 am

The floors in our PreK rooms were just replaced with nice, bright, clean tile. They are beautiful but we are in need of some soft floor areas. The Crayons Carpet under the Classroom Decorations tab would be absolutely awesome!

52 Kim H August 15, 2011 at 8:18 am

What a great website! I think I could spend a small fortune on all that stuff. I guess if I had to choose, I would choose the wooden cars with street signs. But I could also go for the huge vats of finger paint, since they seem to get used way too quickly, or the awesome letter wooden puzzles, or… or… Too much great stuff to choose from!

53 Karen August 15, 2011 at 8:20 am

The wooden vehicles and traffic signs would make a great addition to our block area. Thank you.

54 lori August 15, 2011 at 8:21 am

wow. so many choices. it was difficult to choose, but i am partial to the sand / crystal filled blocks. they would be an intriguing addition to our block center. thanks for this fun giveaway and all you do. :)

55 Scott August 15, 2011 at 8:21 am

Lots of great choices – but when I saw the Primary Rocker Balance Scale I knew that was the one I would choose. We’ve been wanting this type of scale for a while – just haven’t gotten one yet.

(Although those filled blocks are pretty cool and I’m a sucker for blocks….)

56 chris August 15, 2011 at 8:26 am

I love the sand filled blocks! What a great toy to add to our block center!

57 Jenni Booth August 15, 2011 at 8:30 am

Those sand-filled blocks are adorable! What a great giveaway! :)

58 Marilyn Tschorke August 15, 2011 at 8:34 am

Thanks for the chance at this fun giveaway! I would love the colorful sand filled blocks for my preschool block center. The kids would love them!

59 Jennifer Stoufer August 15, 2011 at 8:37 am

I would love the Crystal Bead filled Rainbow Blocks #712001! They look cool, make cool noise, and are fun to build with! Thanks!

60 Leeanne A August 15, 2011 at 8:38 am

I would love to win the scales for my science table as well – that’s the first thing that popped into my head – I was hoping they would be on the list!

61 Stacey August 15, 2011 at 8:41 am

I have worked in preschool for years, but just started providing inclusive ecse services and would like to offer a bigger variety of puzzles for my students. I am interested in the transportation sound puzzles and the magnetic puzzles. I am impressed by the variety of items (and the affordable prices) in the clearance section. Thanks for directing us there. I have not shopped from this source before.

62 Amanda C August 15, 2011 at 8:42 am

We are going to be doing animal habitats in just a couple of months! The Quick Life science lab kit would be awesome for that (plus several other activities through the year!). Thanks for the opportunity!

63 Eve Morreale August 15, 2011 at 8:44 am

I would be really really happy if I am chosen to receive a set of the Filled Blocks. The children in our preschool classroom are very creative blocks builders. We are always looking for different blocks to build. Thanks for hosting this give-away.

64 Kristah August 15, 2011 at 8:44 am

Those blocks are beautiful. I had a set of fill your own blocks like that, but unfortunately they were not as sturdy as they claimed. As soon as the kids knocked down their tower, some broke. Let me know how the prefilled ones last. I would love the Early Learning Tiles classroom set

65 Nikki August 15, 2011 at 8:50 am

I have been wanting a scale for science activities at my daycare, so if I were lucky enough to win I would want the

Primary Rocker Balance

Thanks for offering the giveaway!

66 Jessi Morris August 15, 2011 at 8:52 am

I would love to win the sand filled rainbow blocks for my inclusive preschool classroom. The building that my classroom is housed in does not allow sand to be used in the discovery table, so these blocks would be great for my classroom and the children would love them!

67 Deb August 15, 2011 at 9:04 am

I would love to supplement my “farm week” with the folding horse stable. Kids are so imaginative and really seem to love this kind of play!

68 Felicia Johnson August 15, 2011 at 9:05 am

There were so many fun things to chose from! But I finally settled on The GeoSafari World Cloth Map. I couldn’t tell if that was part of clearance or not, so if it isn’t, my second pick is the sand-filled blocks.

69 Kassia August 15, 2011 at 9:10 am

Wow! This is a great website. If I win I’d love the folding horse stable. Lots of great play could happen with this stable!!

70 Jennifer August 15, 2011 at 9:21 am

It was fun to look through the many choices of pre-school classroom supplies and put together a wish list! I really like the Multi-Ethnic School Dolls. We have children in our school from many different cultures and I know the dolls would make them feel special!

71 Darcey August 15, 2011 at 9:22 am

It’s a hard choice, but I’d like to win the water filled rainbow blocks. Thanks for the opportunity.

72 Diane August 15, 2011 at 9:32 am

I would love to have the Early Learning Tiles Classroom Set to add some new activities to my morning work boxes. It was hard to choose from all the items listed! Thanks for the chance!

73 Erin August 15, 2011 at 9:34 am

I’d love to win the Cooking Set:

My little guy recently got a play kitchen, but has very limited utensils to use with his kitchen!

Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway!

74 Sharnet August 15, 2011 at 9:37 am

I would love to have the Shimmering Water filled Rainbow Blocks to add to my block area. Thank you so much for doing this.

75 Abby August 15, 2011 at 9:37 am

I teach two year olds and think they would really love the “Sandwich Building Kit.” Thanks for the fun giveaway and for all the great info on your blog!!

76 Jamie @ hands on : as we grow August 15, 2011 at 9:38 am

Thanks National School Supply for sponsoring such an awesome giveaway for Deborah to host! Thanks Deborah too!

I have my eye on the Sandwich Making Box — though any of the items would be awesome!

77 Karen Harrington August 15, 2011 at 9:39 am

WOW, Thank you so much! I have to admit I loved looking through the website and saw a million things that I would like. I think our school could use the FISKARS Rotary Trimmer the most. Our trimmer has seen better days, if you know what I mean :) and my classroom loves to make our own books. THANKS again for hosting the giveaway!

78 Kristin August 15, 2011 at 9:41 am

I would love to win the “Folding Horse Stable.” My class last year would have loved it and I’m sure this class would enjoy it as well. Thank you for providing a give-away opportunity!

79 paula August 15, 2011 at 9:42 am

I would love the attribute blocks, there’s sooo much I can do with them in my class and we don’t have a set yet!

80 Michelle R August 15, 2011 at 9:42 am

I am in need of the cooking set. Thanks for sharing a great site! There are loads of great deals

81 Andrea August 15, 2011 at 9:46 am

I would love to win the sand filled blocks! They would be a fabulous addition to my block area.

82 Carol August 15, 2011 at 9:47 am

Would love a set of those sand filled blocks for my school. The kids & I would both enjoy them!

83 Laura Major August 15, 2011 at 9:47 am

Oooh! Love this giveaway! I would want to win the Storytelling Glove and Finger Puppets or the Complete Book of Activities, Games, Stories, Props, Recipes! I couldn’t choose which one I LOVE best! Mwahaha! ;)

84 Georgeann August 15, 2011 at 10:12 am

Love the dual sided magnifiers! My preschoolers are always popping out the lense of my little plastic ones. Haven’t tried wooden ones yet — looks good!

85 Lisa August 15, 2011 at 10:15 am

I found so many great products highlighted but the item that I wold most like to win would be the Quick Life Science Lab Kit under Science supplies. I will be teaching a science enrichment class this year and would love all of the products in the kit to get me started.

86 Michelle T August 15, 2011 at 10:20 am

I would be thrilled to win the Primary Math Resource Kit!! It would be such a benefit to our homeschool classroom and I know my girls would learn so much from it! Thanks for the chance :)

87 Rose August 15, 2011 at 10:28 am

I would love the book “Language Arts File Folder Learning Center K-1.” It would be a nice addition for those more advanced students.

88 Hope Massey August 15, 2011 at 10:33 am

I would love to have the sand filled rainbow blocks for my two little boys. They would have loads of fun with them!

89 Carrie August 15, 2011 at 10:41 am

I’m torn cause there’s some many great things there. I’m going to put my entry in for the teaching cash register.

90 Amy August 15, 2011 at 11:00 am

I just started teaching Pre-K and would love a Primary Time Teacher Learning Clock! My kids love looking at the clock and practicing timing themselves taking turns!

91 gina lovejoy August 15, 2011 at 11:10 am

I own Lovjeoy Play School and have been working on the ratings scale and drama is one of my low points I would love to have the little pretenders Doc dressup. ( the kids would really love them)
Love the info from your sight

92 Gloria August 15, 2011 at 11:16 am

I would love the sand filled blocks! This is my 5th year in Early Childhood Education…these would be a wonderful addition to my classroom!

93 Carol August 15, 2011 at 11:23 am

Wow! What a great give-away!! I would like the Manuscript Visual Closure Stamp Set. Thank you :)

94 Kelly Gardner August 15, 2011 at 11:35 am

The Sand Blocks totally rock & would love to have some for my Teea Timer’s!!!

Thanks for the chance to win!!!

95 Vicki R August 15, 2011 at 11:43 am

I would love the Primary Math Resource Kit. I homeschool my 2 youngest children and provide a preschool-like program for my dayhome children. This would be awesome!!! Thanks :)

96 Marie August 15, 2011 at 11:57 am

This is great! I’ve been asking my supervisor for a carpet for years so our students at our Parks & Rec program can comfortably participate in more large group music and circle time activities. Our park classroom has (problematic)wood floors only but city budgets are tight, tight, tight. We would LOVE to win the Crayons Carpet!

97 Heather Cook August 15, 2011 at 12:01 pm

I would love to have the GeoSafari Wonder World Cloth Map. I have never seen anything like this and it quickly got added to my “wish list”

98 Melissa Mize August 15, 2011 at 12:03 pm

I would love to win the money blocks set. http://www.nationalschoolsupply.com/group/MONEY-BLOCKS-SET.htm
I work with Special Needs and they always need help with money.
Thanks for being so generous.

99 Amanda C August 15, 2011 at 12:06 pm

My two little guys would LOVE the filled blocks!

100 Mary August 15, 2011 at 12:18 pm

I would love to win the teaching cash register!! Thanks for the chance!!

101 Christy Dieter August 15, 2011 at 12:24 pm

Attribute Block Set in a Box
This would be a great addition to my 3 year old preschool classroom. I would love to watch my kids explore with these manipulatives and see what their imaginations come up with. :)
This is a great give-away!

102 Robin V. Drolet August 15, 2011 at 12:47 pm

Laugh N’ Learn Silly Songs

I would love to win this for our Preschool Classes… I love this and think it is a great idea…. I am going back now to place an order…. Thanks a million for taking the time to share this with all of us

Robin Drolet
Meridianville Al.

103 Jenn August 15, 2011 at 12:49 pm

I would love to add the Early Learning Tiles Classroom Set to my UPK classroom! I’m always looking for new, hands-on manipulatives to help teach literacy and math concepts.

104 Wendi August 15, 2011 at 12:52 pm

I would love to win the Cooking Set (#791025) for my preschool classroom! Thanks!

105 DeAnna Miller August 15, 2011 at 12:59 pm

Perfection, the game, for sure. I work with kids in foster care and that game could keep them occupied during one of our meetings. I remember getting so nervous playing that game!

106 Laurie August 15, 2011 at 1:05 pm

So many things to choose! Geosafrai Plantinum4 would be choice #1 though….

107 Aubrey August 15, 2011 at 1:09 pm

I would love to win the little pretenders- hairdresser outfit. We have a few of the community helpers dress up outfits but i think that hairdressers often get overlooked and they are a community helper that my students can truly relate to!! Thank you!!

108 Sabrina August 15, 2011 at 1:39 pm

I am brand new to this site….LOVE it!
I have taught for 12 years in public school in first grade. This year the Lord led me to a private preschool to teach K4. I am missing my public school materials! I would LOVE to win ANYTHING from that site!! However, my choice would be the Primary Math Resource Kit or the Easy Grip Pegs and Playpad set.
Thanks a lot!

109 Amanda Dillon August 15, 2011 at 2:10 pm

I would love to use the Early Learning Tiles Classroom Set. Such a great tool for a variety of learners.

110 Megan August 15, 2011 at 3:03 pm

I would love the clearance music set!

111 Kosharem August 15, 2011 at 3:15 pm

We would love to win the Geofix classroom kit from the math special clearance section.

112 Jen August 15, 2011 at 3:21 pm

So many neat items! My daughter would love playing with the teaching cash register that’s on clearance.

113 Nora - Tara's Toyland August 15, 2011 at 3:24 pm

OHHH how fun!! I love those blocks you have. But what I would want to win for my daycare room is the wooden fold away stable.
I am confused by some of the items people say they want to win. I could not find the vehicles or signs in the clearance sections, nor the blocks that you have in your picture.

114 Denise August 15, 2011 at 3:28 pm

I would love the Attribute Block Set in a Box for my preschoolers. Thanks!

115 Stephanie Wyatt August 15, 2011 at 3:32 pm

We would LOVE to win the Upper/Lower case Alphabet Stampers in the Language section of the clearance site. Thanks for the chance to win!!! :)



116 Megan August 15, 2011 at 3:39 pm

The big and little paddles at National School Supply,
Would be a treat for curious kids,but which one should we try?
One paddle makes things look quite big,
The other makes things look small,
But the one to make their teacher shrink,
Would be the best of all!

So I’d REALLY love to have the sand blocks above. I bet my kids would love them as much as Wy. :) Unfortunately I didn’t see them on clearance . . . so my next choice would be the fold-up horse stable. We aren’t too interested in horses this year, but the cows and piggies would love a house!

160 Diana August 16, 2011 at 9:30 am

Thanks for doing this – lots of fun looking at the give-a-ways! The big/little lenses look like a great addition to our classroom/school. What a surprise it would be to pick up a magnifier only to discover it was a “shrinker” instead!

Not to be greedy, but the 1st Animal puzzles looked beautiful and unlike any of puzzles…definitely going to share the link with my director! http://www.nationalschoolsupply.com/group/FIRST-ANIMALS-PUZZLE-SET.htm

Wow, there are so many wonderful things on the National School Supply website. Even just the clearance page has many interesting toys and activities, it is so hard to choose just one.

However, since I have to choose, I have been looking for more finger puppets for the kids and the Storytelling Glove and Finger Puppets look perfect. I love that they come in sets of the common traditional stories, and would love to win any of these, especially Jack and the Beanstock or Red Riding Hood.

Please enter me, and thank you for doing the give-away, and thank you to NSS for offering the giveaway!

200 Ana Hernandez August 17, 2011 at 11:45 am

I would love to win the Multi-Ethnic School Dolls. I must admit that there were so many things to chose from but these dolls just caught my eye. It is so important to expose children to different cultures and ethnic backgrounds. I know the children under my care would have so much fun playing with these dolls, all the while learning to be more accepting of people who may look or act differently than themselves.

Good Luck to everyone who has entered!
