Payton and I headed out to go school shopping, but the catch was, she had to pick-out enough supplies for two students and additional to donate to her school. I knew that Walmart would have the best prices on back-to-school essentials. To see our entire shopping trip head on over to my google+ album.
While the shopping list for a preschooler isn't very big, there were a few items that were required by the school. Based on our classrooms unique list we needed to purchase a 2-3 gallon bucket and a 1" binder. However, we know that every preschooler needs plenty of glue, crayons, scissors, paint and markers for their exploratory learning. By shopping at Walmart, I was able to purchase enough supplies for three children and an abundance for the school for under $100.
Walmart has great pricing on school supplies and while I could have purchased non-Crayola products to further my dollar I chose to donate what we always use at home. Most of the supplies started at .50 and did not go over $2, which is nice if you have multiple school aged children.
When we got home we created a build-a-bucket table! It was a sea of school supplies ready to be tucked into three buckets for the students and school.
The bucket building process was so fun to do with my daughter and it felt even better dropping everything off to her school. I knew that if the preschool couldn't use a particular item that it could be allocated somewhere else on campus since our church offers a preschool-12 program.
