The day before school started, I stocked a Back to School Shoppe at our house.
I gathered all of Aubrey's school supplies, miscellaneous art supplies, party fans, and a mini shopping cart for the set-up.
Before the store "opened" -- I read off the school supply list to Aubrey and had her make her own list (she drew pictures of the items).
(This photo doesn't show the entire list.)
Aubrey grabbed her purse and some play money, and waited for the stock-boy / bagger to open the store. :)
Oh the indescribable joy of buying school supplies!
Aubrey absolutely loved filling the shopping cart with the items and then marking them off her list.
Once she had everything, it was time to ring it all up! The total came to $29, and she decided to pay with her debit card (wink wink). When I asked for a form of identification, she gave me her library card. (I love this girl so much.)
After she paid, she went to the table to label all her items before putting them in her backpack. I had Sharpies and stickers with her initials.
I think we'll need to do this every year before school starts! It was so fun!
