Kalahari Day 3

Today was the Wednesday of our week at Kalahari and the Unschoolers Waterpark Gathering.

We spent some time this morning getting ready for the Kids’ Marketplace. A9 made some duct tape projects, all Minecraft related, for her shop. S10 made borax crystal kits with canning jars and chenille stems. O8 made pop rockets, which were a big hit at S10’s Space birthday party a couple years ago. The kit included a film canister (which she decorated at home) and two generic antacid tablets.

Good thing we headed down early to the funshop. Here’s the line of vendors waiting behind us:

We got a table in a corner so that O8 would have room to demonstrate her pop rockets. Here is our launching stage:

The girls shared a table and took turns watching each other’s shops and visiting the rest of the marketplace.

This is such a neat venue for the kids. They participated in every aspect, from “product development” to sales. All three did well, but O8 cleaned up with her pop rockets: she sold 14 of them at $2 apiece, plus a bunch of extra fuel tabs. She plans to spend her cash at the arcade later.  S10 sold 6 crystal kids at $3 each.  A9 also sold a number of pieces.

In the evening, we went to the dance for a short while, then headed back to the room for some card games and Minecraft.
