Dollar Tree Kids Craft Supplies: Made in the USA!

What's Better than Finding a Bargain? Finding One That's Made in the USA!

I found these {domestic} kids craft and school supplies at the Dollar Tree!

My girls go through a lot of craft supplies because one of their favorite things to do is "projects." {Guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree on that one}. And as much as I encourage their creative pursuits, they go through craft supplies like crazy. Really. I mean, I give them a tube of glitter glue, and it's gone in about 30 seconds. They also go through a ton of paper (which I promise, I recycle afterwards!), so I'm always on the lookout for inexpensive paper packs that suit their needs.

Enter: Dollar Tree. I wandered in today looking for some storage bins (which I didn't find), but as I walked down the school supply aisle, I found these pads of paper and scooped them up right away. I loved that the Manuscript Tablet had the nice wide lines for them to practice their letters (and it also just so happens they're really into writing "letters" to people these days, too), and the 3-in-1 Activity Pad had three different types of paper, so, really, their project opportunities are limitless. Ok, maybe I exaggerate a little, but at $1 a piece, I was pretty happy. BTW I can't believe these are also available online. I just checked the site on a whim, and I found those links!

But that's not even the best part... they're made in the USA! Now I'm officially stoked, because my biggest issue with Dollar Tree products is that the vast majority of them are imported from China, so often I'm wary of buying things from there, especially from the kids section. But now that I know I may find more items that are Made in the USA, I'll be headed there more often to see what other domestic, useful, inexpensive "finds" will turn up.
