Many of us homeschoolers are learning all year long. I don’t know about you but we buy school supplies more than just once a year. Back to school time is usually when you can find the best prices, but sometimes I need school supplies or craft supplies in December. That is when I turn to the Dollar Tree homeschool supplies. They also have plenty of craft supplies!
Some products have been said to contain harmful chemicals or other harmful materials at the Dollar store. I cannot confirm this information, but you should use caution. Buy/Use any of these items at your own risk. Also, this is not a complete list of what you should have to homeschool. This only contains things you could buy at the Dollar store to use as homeschool items. Obviously, some of these would be inferior to a higher quality counterpart.
Some items may not be available at the store you decide to visit.

I recently found a new item at the Dollar Tree (2018). It’s a large map of the USA. I’d say it’s probably 4′ x 3′. It’s very nice for the price I have to say. It’s bigger than any other map, that I’ve gotten my hands on.
Check out my other homeschool articles. I have gathered a lot of free resources go check them out too!
We have this great little craft thrift store here. We can get cheap supplies there too. I think the idea is genius! It gives us a place to donate old crafting materials we may not need. Also, the school and offices in our town found it is a useful place to drop off their old books and folders and other office supplies. Which is great for homeschoolers like us! I have gotten many books really cheap this way. I like reading textbooks, I know I am kinda weird like that, but it works out because I am homeschooling three boys so…
Anyhow, make sure to check the crafts, birthday, office supplies, and resource section for other cool supplies at the Dollar Tree! Some stores carry different items and it may change depending on the season. You might find some really cool items that they didn’t have in my store! If you find something cool not listed here please comment and let me know.
