Dollar Tree Homeschool Finds

You know as a Homeschool Mom, I’m always looking for fun and inexpensive ways to supplement our curriculum. I have so many ideas and activities I want to do, but being able to afford to do them all can become an issue. That’s why we hit up the Dollar Tree pretty much weekly to look for fun workbooks, art projects, and teaching resources.

dollar-tree-homeschoolI love that there are always shelves full of age appropriate workbooks that I can grab to help instill what we’re learning from our curriculum. They’re great for supplementing our core curriculum, make great ‘homework’ assignments, and even can be used just for fun, extra learning!

dollar-tree-homeschool-3They also have great activities and resources- like this thermometer we use in conjunction with our daily calendar to record the weather. Or tools like this frog life cycle that we used when we learned about reptiles and amphibians. 


Don’t forget they’re also a great resource for inexpensive tools and art supplies. Which we inevitably lose and have to re-purchase, so I love that everything’s a dollar! My son always grabs a few art activities like these painting kits that he can do during art time.

If you’ve been watching my Instagram stories, you’ll also notice all of the fun plant growing kits we’ve been using for Science experiments. We’re now the proud owner of 12 sunflower sprouts, a daisy, and some newly planted basil seeds.

This post isn’t sponsored- I just wanted to share some of my finds with my fellow homeschool parents, so that you know that it doesn’t all have to cost an arm and a leg.

    Great learning finds!!! The Dollar Tree is my FAVE place for sooo many things! When we were teaching our girls to write letters we bought workbooks from there, and we always buy art supplies and party decorations there too!!!

    we don’t homeschool, but I do stuff with him after preschool and when i was teaching kindergarten I used to get stuff for my classroom at Dollar Tree all the time. They surprisingly have such great resources! Plus when it only costs a dollar you dont get upset when you have to throw it away! haha
