So it all started last week when I realized that since it’s summer, I can finally do one of my most favorite things- go to Target anytime I want to! 🙂 With that realization, I created a meme to show my excitement and posted it on my Instagram feed.
One thing led to another, and I found myself setting up a Target date with one of my teacher friends, Carrie from Adventures in Kinder and Beyond and I couldn’t have been more excited! To share the fun, we named our outing “Friends at Target” and decided to invite all of our friends on Instagram to follow our stories and feed to see all the goodies that we would find.
After catching up on coffee at the Starbucks conveniently located inside the Target, we headed straight to the Dollar Spot to hunt for all the new and cute items for our classrooms! And oh look at all the things that we found! From colorful binders, file folders, magnetic dry-erase boards, to chalk, fluffy pillows for reading centers, activity books for math and science, and easy readers on shapes, colors, and animals, they were all there right in front of the store just waiting for us to throw them all into our cart!
We had so much fun that we headed over to the home decor aisles to see what else we could find for our classroom, and it only got better! From sweet little rugs to a live-sized tent to stuffed flamingos, bears, and unicorns to cactus-shaped lamps and more! Honestly, I wanted to buy them all for my classroom and for my own kids’ rooms.
After an hour and a half of walking up and down the aisles like two overly excited teachers needing an intervention from the Target employees and a Where-Are-You phone call from both of our families, we had to call it a day and check out with a cart full of goodies.
Even though we had to say goodbye, we didn’t want the fun to end there! So….if you are reading this, I am tagging you to find a buddy to go with you on a Target date and share all the amazing items that you find at your local Target!
