Keiki Swap Meet
My husband, Art happened to be looking in the morning newspaper and saw an announcement that there would be a Keiki (Hawaiian for children) toy and clothing sale at Kakaako Park in Honolulu. Local children were bringing their own toys and clothes to sell. We thought it might be fun to check it out to see what we could find to stock our closet for that granddaughter we're missing so much and any other little one that would be visiting us.
We didn't expect to have as much fun as we did. That teacher instinct in me bloomed again when I saw that kids were really encouraged to be in charge of their own sales. Parents were using the opportunity to teach their children why math is definitely important in their everyday lives.
We got a bit carried away and bought quite a bit more than we intended. Still, we actually spent only $20.00 for all of this.
P.S. Thank you so much for visiting Peggy and leaving her your kind and beautiful comments full of encouragement and advice. You are the best blogging buddies ever!
