The little Jupiter expanding towel is something I have seen but never tried, not exactly sure what to expect, but hey-we are picking up our solar system study with Jupiter tomorrow, so it is going in the workbox for fun!
Neat huh? On the back there is a place for the child to write the info on their state and it also lists the abbreviations for the state names.

So there are some of the goodies. I am going back for a couple more of something I found and will post that later. Til then-enjoy some more ideas from the box.
