Spring Cleaning Giveaway!

~This giveaway is now CLOSED!~

Call it spring cleaning, call it nesting - either way, I've been busy cleaning and organizing our closets! I discovered a bunch of school supplies that I no longer need or that I have duplicates of and I thought who better to share them with than one of you!

A little of this, a little of that -
just a hodgepodge set of cut outs and stickers.

Here's a close up of what's included...
Fruits. I removed the packaging from these cut outs and so I can't recall the name of the company that makes them, but they are awesome! They're quite large and the images are very real-looking.

Vegetables. Great for a farm unit. And, with these and the fruits, you could provide your child with a simple sorting activity (fruits vs. vegetables).

Rainforest animals. Perfect for a South America continent bag/box!

Sand dollars. Not enough for a calendar board, but you could use them as cards in a 'cards and counters' activity. Great for a beach theme!

Jumbo US coins. These are a lot of fun and come with a cut out for the front and the back of the coin. We used ours during our recent money lesson. (Note, the real coin is pictured for size perspective only :).

Color cards. I used these with James a few years ago when he was first learning about colors - click here to see our lesson.

Butterflies. We used these during our spring unit. You could create nomenclature cards and/or labels to match them or have your child hunt through a butterfly book to try and identify them.

Stickers. A set of 20 different sheets, all unused. There are LOTS of ways to use stickers - I often use them in our themes by making scissor practice strips or to make math cards. The letter sheets in this set could be used as a mini moveable alphabet!

A humble offering, but I hope it's one that will benefit someone's classroom! :) Here's what you need to do if you'd like to enter to win...

1. Leave a comment on this post.

For extra entries:
2. Like Counting Coconuts on Facebook and leave me a separate comment on this post letting me know you have/already do.
3. Follow Counting Coconuts and leave me a separate comment on this post letting me know you have/already do.
4. After today come back and leave me one comment per day on this post until the end of the giveaway.

*NOTE re: separate comments - each entry will be counted as a chance to win. If you put all of your entry requirements into just ONE comment, you'll only have ONE chance to win.

This giveaway will end on Friday, June 17th at 9pm Atlantic Time and is open to anyone, anywhere!

~Good luck, everyone!~
