See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
My kids love going to yard sales to get toys. I don't want to drive all over town. My kids have lots of toys they dont play with. I'm thinking of hosting a kid type yard sale. Inviting several families to have their kids gather toys they dont want. They can price their toys. We all meet at the park with the toys and a blanket. They spread out their blanket and set up their shop. I dont want to use real money. Maybe I could hand out the same amount of play money to each kid. But if they are shopping and selling how would that work? I haven't done this before. Help me sort out some of those types of details or point out any possible problems for me or give another suggestion on how this could work. I think I am on to something fun for the kids. Do you think they should use real money instead? Do we need to use coins for all those tiny cheap toys that kids have laying around and may want to include? Maybe ask kids to bring what they believe is at least $10 worth of toys and then give them $10 fake dollars to start with. They would get more if their stuff sold. What about the fake money left at the end? Maybe we could do it once a month if it works out. feedback please ladies
