Default Grant Wish List

I'm meeting with the woman that is helping me get prepared to submit my request for a grant tomorrow. I'm to have a list of items that I would like to get for my daycare and have up to $4,500. I have the following items on my list. Racking my brain to think of something else really neat that the kids would like. This is what I have so far, so if you have any other ideas, let me know! Thanks!

Step 2 water/sand table
Step 2 outside playhouse
Kids microscope with prepared slides
2 LED light tables
Geometric shapes for the tables
Insect xrays and picture cards for table
Infant water tummy time mat
Animal xrays
2 Magnet Tile sets
Jumbo tweezers and magnifying glass set
Bucket of bugs
Melissa and Doug pan set, mixer, food
Melissa and Doug lacing beads
Small infant mirror
play tunnel
Baby gym (the kind that baby lays under)
Small toddler table and chairs
Various Ikea storage furniture
laptop
printer

What am I missing?

I always buy those little manipulative tubs. We have a TON of them, I rotate them out (no room for all of them) but I would love the shelf that holds them all!

I worked for a few months with my consultant at our local Great Start To Quality office. Got my star rating up from a 1 to a 3!! There is another one in July.
