Teaching Time for Toddlers

This week I would like to highlight a surprisingly great place to get learning tools and supplies for toddlers.

Your local Dollar Tree.

That's right, the place where everything's a dollar.

They have construction paper, writing paper, crayons, coloring books, flashcards, magnets, and more for, that's right, just a dollar.  The exact same stuff can cost up to four times as much at Wal-Mart and Target.  Maybe the crayons aren't Crayola or the paper isn't archival quality, but does your kid care?  Not a bit.  I was also quite pleasantly surprised by the number of pre-school and kindergarten geared workbooks at my local store.  Obviously, these workbooks are a bit too advanced for Catherine, but I loved that they had workbooks for math, reading, penmanship, and more!  I certainly see us picking them up in the future.

We did pick up a few things over the weekend--some new flashcards, magnetic numbers, and a Bible themed coloring book.

I would love to say thank you to all the people who linked up in the past!  I love everything that you've shared!

Now for this week's party!  What have you and your toddler(s) done lately?  Have you made anything?  Cooked something?  Do you have a tip or a story to share?  If it is toddler related, this is the place to link up!  I can't wait to see what you have.  I'd love if you'd grab the button from my sidebar and put it somewhere on your blog--but you don't have to.  


  1. I agree! The dollar store is wonderful for toddler/preschooler activities! I have most of the flashcards available there, and I also love the books of 400+ reward stickers for $1.

  2. I got some toys for Noah for a road trip the other day from the Dollar Store. I will definitely be going back for supplies!!

  3. I love our dollar stores! Also, remember that Target has a dollar section right by the entrance of their stores, and you can often find stickers and other goodies there.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I love reading each and every one!
