Jenna at Speech Room News is hosting a Thrifty Finds Linky. I also frequent thrift stores a lot and occasionally find some awesome goodies. Below are Amazon links to some of my favorite things I've found, since most of my stuff is packed up in boxes.
1. Beware of the Dog: I found this gem at a local thrift store and it's been a hit. Be careful with this game if you have younger kids who scare easily. You push the the dog back and he snores. You have to get the bones out of his dish without waking him up. If you do wake him up, he jumps up and barks. I've had some kids who LOVE it and some who are quite terrified!
2. Pop the Pig: I found this one at the same thrift store and the kids go bananas for it. So do fellow teachers for some reason...haha. Feed the pig the burgers and press his head. Watch his stomach get bigger and bigger until he POPS!
3. Holey Cow: This is a card game that features funny pig dressed up as various things. Each card has a bunch of holes and you're supposed to put two cards together and count how many holes you see. There's a game board, but we have played by putting marbles on the holes, discussing the names of the cows, and other ways.
Those were my favorites this year! Don't forget to check out what gems other bloggers found here.
