free transition activities - free little libraries

As a Transition Teacher, I am always on the lookout for FREE community based activities.  

I turned visiting Free Little Libraries into a lesson.  In our classroom, we would use the computers to look up Free Little Libraries. Here is the website:

We practiced searching for them by zip code.  We would then map out our walk or bus route (travel training, safety, community based instruction, etc.) 

I went to Home Depot and Lowes and got some FREE paint sample cards.  We used them to make bookmarks (Using stamps and decorative punches).  

We would leave our bookmarks in a cute, decorated shoebox, old Amazon box, or cup in or near the Free Little Library.    

We are still working on rebuilding our job and volunteer activities, so this has been a fun, educational activity to help fill in some gaps in our daily schedule.
