TpT Seller Challenge: Makeover Madness

So, I'm a little behind, but I wanted to make sure I had everything done the way I wanted before the big reveal!

My TpT journey started in 2012. Now...let me stress that it WAS NOT something I thought would be Earth-shattering for me in terms of designing great products. I was really more interested in finding great products to use myself. But one day, I thought...what the heck! I'll upload this little game I made for my kiddos! 

Ha. I look at it now and CRINGE. Oh the handwritten numbers...and the scanned pages. I die!


To be honest, I never even gave this product much thought. I put it up for free. People downloaded it. Eh.

Fast forward to this summer when the TpT Seller Challenge commenced. The first challenge was to makeover a product in your store. store is slim pickins' folks. But, I knew this one had to be redone. 

And boy, has it changed!!!

I can now officially say that I LOVE this product. It went from this bland little apple sort (purposeful, but bland) to this fun, eye-catching learning tool. Here's the FINAL product!

I added more number cards to increase the rigor and allow for more variations for the activity. There are also addition and subtractions problems, along with some basic picture cards and an answer recording sheet. Five variations for using the activity are included, along with editable number cards! 

Seeing how the product grew so much, I felt like I needed to split it into a freebie and a paid product. You can see what is included in the freebie in the picture below , and you can click HERE to download it. But...

Are you interested in getting the entire pack for FREE??? The entire pack will be a very special FREEBIE for all my TpT followers until tomorrow at 12noon MST. At that time, I will send out the magical link to all of my followers on TpT! So, head over to my very newish, smallish store and FOLLOW ME by clicking HERE! More new things are coming, and I want to show my thanks to those who are willing to take a chance on me! And...I would appreciate ANY feedback you are willing to share.

After 12noon tomorrow, I will put it on SALE for 50% off through this Sunday night at 10pm MST.

Stay tuned for more from my TpT Seller Challenge!
