Resale/Yard Sale Finds: Part 2

I know I said I would post the rest of my yard sale finds last week, but I just didn't have a chance.  So, I'll play catch up this week!

Aren't these neat tongs?  There are so many things that the kids could use these to pick up for a practical life work!

A simple small metal pitcher.  I don't have any metal pitchers yet, so this will be a great addition to my practical life pitcher collection!

Isn't this a neat tray for sorting!  I think it will be great for a Fall math, sensorial, or practical life work!

Look at this collection of small vases I found!  I thought they would be great for pouring work or even for flower arranging with really small fake flowers!

I bought these specifically to use as smelling jars.  I am planning on painting the outside of three of them blue and the other three red, like the kind you buy from a Montessori supply store.  Or, I might cover them with blue and red fabric, we'll see...

This is for pouring work.  I think the little lid will add another interesting aspect.

I love the natural appeal of these wooden bowls!  There were actually a lot more that I could have bought, but I decided I needed to limit how many, so I went with just four.  These have so many uses!

I bought these to use as pencil holders.  My daughters Montessori school has little glass containers like these at the easel, etc. as pencil holders.  I thought this was a great idea, so when I found these, I thought they would work perfectly!

Simple plastic tongs.

A child-size wisk.

Two bags of tiny sea shells.  These have so many uses - art, math, practical life, sensorial (sorting), etc.

These are just cheap foam number puzzles.  I bought them so that I could use the numbers for numeral and counter math work.

I looked all over for this exact thing last school year around Valentine's Day and couldn't find it.

Great little set for pouring work.  There are actually three cups in the set, but I missed one when I took the picture.

A simple ladle spoon.

Well, that's it for my resale/yard sale finds so far this Summer.  I plan to do more shopping throughout the Summer!  One of my favorite things to do is shop at resale stores and yard sales!

I am linking up with Montessori Monday!
