I am always trying to find unique ideas for arts and crafts to do with RJ and have been coming up with some fun stuff to do for Easter and be economically responsible to not spend too much on the supplies. I went to one of the local Dollar Tree to pick up learning and arts supplies and was pleasantly surprised to see the huge selection is Easter baskets, eggs, colored grass, pre painted eggs, candy and other supplies to decorate or create Easter baskets.
They have there’s really cool square decorative baskets with bunnies and flowers, bunny ears, cloth like baskets that were sports themed ( football 🏈 , soccer ⚽️ and basketball 🏀 designs) and all for $1 each. I purposely checked out some of the items at WalMart and Target. The only closely priced item to $1 were some of the plastic baskets that were marked for $0.98 cents on price drop.
There is a large selection of decorations and signs the for lawns, front doors and just about everything else you could imagine. I had a successful trip and of course I left the store with more than I intended all while saving more than I would have if i had purchased from a large box store. I hope you have one of the stores in your area and have an opportunity to visit and check out their selections.
I absolutely love the “Teachers Corner”. You can find great learning resources for your little ones. Some of my favorite items in that section is the world map 🗺, K-5th grade core learning books for math, phonics and science. They have been great resources to help us prepare our son for Pre-K and Kindergarten next year. I saw the same items in larger retailers for $5.95 and above each.
All the best until next time.
