100 Things You Can Purchase from the Dollar Tree and Use in the classroom with over 150 activities using those materials! PERFECT NOW THAT DOLLAR STORE WILL BE CLOSE TO ME.
100 Things You Can Purchase from the Dollar Tree and Use in the classroom with over 150 activities using those materials! So many great ideas in this post! The Food Aisle 1. Food coloring- we use it almost everyday. We use it for sensory baths, arts and crafts, in play dough, and during sensory play, just to name a few. You will find it in a four pack including the primary colors. 2. Pasta- use it in sensory play, to make pasta necklaces, pasta sculptures, or for some fun sensory painting Color it and use it for sorting and math activities. Painting with pasta 3. Jello- we use Jello for sensory play often. It has such a fun texture. We used it to make glowing jello and a jello ocean small world. Use the powder form of jello along with a brush and water for some a simple sensory paint. 4. Kool-aid- make Kool-aid Play-Doh or try sensory painting with Kool-aid. Both are super fast recipes that would be great for the busy classroom. 5. Rice- makes a fantastic sensory experience. Great in a sensory bin like this one from Happy Hooligans 6. Beans- another great sensory material. We used beans as the base for our Valentine's Day sensory bin 7. Flour- make cloud dough or homemade play dough. We have made pumpkin cloud dough, glowing cloud dough, and apple cloud dough Pumpkin Cloud Dough Bakery! 8. Pudding- makes a fantastic edible finger paint 9. Corn starch- make goop or edible finger paint. You can even make corn starch dance. Talk about fun Science! Making goop in the classroom would be lots of fun Here are 25 different ways to play with goop! 10. Baking soda- one fabulously fun way to use this is volcano eruptions. We have done erupting pumpkins, giant volcanoes, and erupting monsters. You can even make the eruptions glow! Glowing eruptions 11. Tea- use it for sensory painting, or for some fantastic pretend play 12. Spices- great for spice painting, making pumpkin bubbles or pretend play cooking using real ingredients. You can also add spices to paint to make scented art and bath paint 13. Coffee filters- make coffee filter butterflies or coffee filter flowers. Here is a list of coffee filter crafts for kids. The Health and Beauty Aisle 14. Shaving cream- Here is a list of 20 ways to play with shaving cream. Shaving cream sliding fun is our personal favorite. In the classroom- put some on the children's desks and let them practice tracing their letters in the shaving cream. It acts as a cleaning agent, wipes right off, and is tons of fun. We also had lots of fun with our bubble wrap sensory slide 15. Bubble bath- I buy our bubble bath at The Dollar Tree. It is tear free, and creates lots of bubbles. It is what we use to get mountains of bubbles when we paint our bubbles at bath. Bubble bath painting Also use bubble bath to make rainbow bubbles and pumpkin bubbles! 16. Bath poofs- these make a great painting tool. Get four mini bath poofs for just $1 17. Lotion- My daughter loves lotion. We use it for sensory play often. We have even made a sensory bin with lotion as the base. 18. Paper plates- use them to make all sorts of paper plate crafts! Lots of simple craft ideas for the classroom! 19. Shower curtains- paint a beautiful shower curtain mural. I love this idea from Come Together Kids! 20. Band-aids- peeling the backs off of band-aids is great for hand-eye coordination ,and fine motor skills. They are just like stickers- toddlers love band-aids. Give them a box when you need to occupy them for a bit. They are also great for pretend play ,and even crafts. This band-aid man is one example 21. Rubbing alcohol- use it to make beautiful colored pasta for crafts, color sorting, math activities, and pasta necklaces. 22. Cotton swabs- there are a ton of fun ways to use cotton swabs. Here is a list of Q-tip crafts for kids. You can also use Q-tips as a teaching tool in the classroom 23. Hair gel- use it to make fun squishy sensory bags. We have made lots of different types of sensory bags from Halloween themed to glowing! In the classroom, make them together. Super inexpensive and the children will have fun with them at home. 24. Bath fragrances- I use these to create our sensory baths. These could also be used to fragrance sensory bins or to make perfume concoctions The Kitchen Gadget Aisle 25. Aluminum foil- use it as a canvas to paint or to make a robot. Here is a whole list of foil crafts for kids 26. Highlighters- use these to make glow water. Just be sure to check that the highlighters you are using are non-toxic. Glow water can make all sorts of things glow. This glowing bath is one example. Check out our glowing playtimes for lots more ideas! 27. Pie pans- for making mud pies, , fun bubble concoctions or in pretend cooking 28. Muffin tins- there are so many ways to utilize a muffin tin other than it's intended use. Use it to hold paint during bath time, spices while spice painting, or for making pretend play cupcakes 29. Ice cube trays- freeze colored ice cubes for bath or to put into your child's Summer beverage. Freeze paint and enjoy some fun outdoor painting in the Summer. 30. Storage containers- all the storage containers used to create our child guided play space were purchased at The Dollar Tree. Teachers and parents can never have enough storage containers! We also use these storage containers to make small scale sensory bins The containers used four our Make Your own Elmo party favors were also purchased here. 31. Tongs- great for manipulating all sorts of materials 32. Measuring cups- great for mixing, pouring, using for pretend cooking and at bath 33. Pasta strainer- use it to make rain in the bath tub, or for pipe cleaner threading 34. Sponges- make sponge bombs, sponge towers, or use them to paint. 35. Table cloths- make a great drop cloth for messy play. They can also be used to make fun slip-N-slides like this one **This whole aisle can pretty much be utilized in some way. Children prefer real gadgets to pretend ones, and if you purchase then at The Dollar Tree, they are actually cheaper than the imitations. Win/win** The Art/Craft/ Office Aisle 36. Poster board- these are two for $1and come in an array of colors. We used postal board to create a removable wall mural so that each child could take a piece of the art work home with them after one of our messy play dates. 37. Construction paper 38. Postal paper- great for large art, homemade gift wrap, and to lay down before a messy project 39. Bubble wrap- what kid doesn't love bubble wrap? Paint it, pop it, giggle! Or make a fun bubble wrap sensory slide 40. Scissors- they have a variety, even ones for beginners just learning to cut 41. Bingo markers- These make a great addition to any art supply collection. These faux Spring flowers from Mom to Posh Lil Divas are a great example of why. They are great for little hands, and create minimal mess. 42. Masking tape- every toddler loves tape. Give them a roll to play with, and they will have a blast. It can also be used for endless projects, of course. 43. Glue sticks 44. School glue- besides all the normal uses, you can use glue to make glow in the dark glue, slime, and for slime basket fun!
rolling pin painting! Seriously this kids's art stuff looks like great fun and would give me better results than anything I could do "properly" wth my meagre adult talents, and yes, I would put it on my wall. It looks pretty. Will use Design seed card to pick colours, possibly use house paint and go all Tortured Artist on my family for a week. I bet they can't wait.
