It looks like Summer at the Dollar Tree this week.
If you do a Beach theme, these plastic wall murals would be great to add to your space!
Our store had plenty of Luau dress up items as well
Now is the time to pick up your Fourth of July items. Our store had these fun Magnets!
They had a variety of Fourth of July related Window Clings (they were stocking when I got there)
Fun Hats for your Fourth of July Parades!
I ran across these giant plastic test tubes in the Teacher Supply section. I thought they would be fun for holding nature specimens (Branches, Leaves, Rocks, etc), or using them to demonstrate color matching.
Our store still had a large selection of Pool Noodles, and Sand Toys-including these Wonder of the World Sand Molds. You can check out more Sand Toys from my last visit.
Did you find anything fun at the Dollar Tree this week?
