5 Fun, Frugal Activities from the Dollar Tree
It’s August, and my kids have just about a month left of their summer break. We’ve enjoyed plenty of great weather, beach days, and time together! Some of our favorite things to do are simple activities, and one of my favorite places to find fun, frugal activities is the Dollar Tree. Today I’m sharing 5 activities you can find at your local Dollar Tree!
Kids love bubbles, and you can easily pick them up at the Dollar Tree. Yesterday I saw at least 4 different sized and themed bottles of bubbles! They even had a couple multi-packs. Bubbles is a great activity for a wide variety of ages (including adults)!
The amount of activity books at the Dollar Tree is endless. You can find coloring books, mazes, word searches, sticker books, educational activities, and more! These are particularly great for road trips, rainy days, and quiet time.
If you’re looking to get your young ones moving, grab a plastic bat and ball set! Take it to the beach or park. Better yet, invite your neighbors over for an evening ball game!
You can get a small pack of 8 blank cards (with envelopes) for $1. While you’re at it, buy some pens and stickers, too. Write a letter and decorate it. Write just for fun or send out a letter to someone who could use a little cheering up!
Ice cream Treat
Did you know that many of the Dollar Trees sell Blue Bunny ice cream ? My kids love when they can get an ice cream treat from the Dollar Tree. I’m happy to oblige because you can’t beat the price!
If you live near a Dollar Tree, drop in this week, and see what fun, frugal ideas you can find! Happy August!!
