Children’s Christmas Market
Our table at the Portland Homeschool Children’s Holiday Market, whereÂ our familyÂ sold homemade gift tags, peppermint bark, and marshmallows.Â It was a wonderful venueÂ for the girls to show off their projects,Â to raise money for various charities, and to network with other Portland homeschoolers.Â Â Â
We raised $28 dollars for charity and sold nearly everything we brought (prices were kept low, soÂ all children could participate in the buying as well as the selling – Â $1 each,Â or 3 for $2).Â We met lots of other great homeschooling/unschooling families.Â The girls came home with tummies full of brownies and a bag full of homecrafted goodies they bought from the other kids at the market – fairy wands, playdoh, postcards, stationery, bean bags, chocolate lollipops.Â
Many thanks to Lyla, who put on the event!!Â There are future events in the works, and we will definitely attend again!
