Dollar Tree to the Rescue with Kids: Crafts

Moms across America received the frightening news at the end of last week that left them floundering. School were closing from 2-3 weeks in light of the COVID-19 virus. Lesson plans were to be sent home & some schools are arranging online class time with their teachers however, this leaves a LOT of time to fill kids’ time & all of it at home. Now not all of us are Martha Stewart, able to come up with great activities to keep kids occupied. And as tempting as it is to turn on the television & let them binge watch their favorite series, we all know deep down this is a very BAD idea! What is a mother to do?

Dollar Tree (or your local dollar store) to the rescue. They have an assortment of items to keep kids occupied & possibly entertained during the days ahead. In this post, I’m going to share the vast wealth of craft items Dollar Tree sells to help you & your kids.
