This week was a BLAST!

We learned all about Shops and Shopping. Where the shops are, the different types of shops that sell different goodies (food, clothes, appliances, medicine etc.), that we have to stay close to Mom or Dad in the shops so that we don’t get lost, and how the process of scanning, paying and packing our items works.

Of course the highlight of the week was when we actually got to go to our “Eco-Shop” and shop for our 5 favourite items! The Bugs absolutely loved this and found it so cool that they got to use a trolley, a purse/wallet/ Eco-Bucks money, as well as a “real” till station to pay at.

The concentration from all of them while they were carefully going through wat our shop had to offer and carefully make their selections was priceless. Thank you so much parents for contributing to this awesome day!

For our art piece this week, we made our adorable little Eco-Wallets that the Bugs used to put their Ec-Bucks in for shopping.

Thank you to all of the Bugs who sent show and tell goodies on Friday, we loved seeing your awesome stuff!
