Monopoly – learning tool

We have played Disney monopoly for the past 3 days and did not watch tv, play on the computer, or listen to music, we just sat and played and laughed and competed heavily.

We took pictures before we put them in the dehydrator and discussed what would happen while they were in the Continue reading
