this past weekend, my son (7) and daughter (3) decided to play “garage sale.” i love when they go all out with their ideas.
first, they pulled many of their toys out of the downstairs play room and brought them into the living room. second, they arranged them all by type in various sections of the living room. third, they put price tags on the toys. fourth, they handed monopoly money to us, the parents, and asked us to buy some things at their garage sale. the store was complete with a cash register at the end to collect money and distribute change. (the cash register was the only thing not for sale… even though i offered them most of my money for it).
since that enjoyable saturday afternoon, i’ve been trying to wrap my head around what it all means. maybe you can help me out:
