Awesome Target Finds Under $5: Part Two

Hey Everyone!

I had such a blast posting about my first bunch Target finds from Bullseye’s Playground, I just had to do another post. Plus, it gives me more of a reason to stroll through those wonderful little isles. With school still a few weeks away, Target is really focusing on school supplies for teachers and children. This works out great for me currently because my little one is home with me all day and my oldest only goes to preschool two days a week now. I am starting to teach my youngest numbers and letters while trying to keep my oldest up to date with his math and spelling.

My last post involved just about all children’s products and this one does too. That’s mom life for ya! Next time I am going to focus on us adults. I honestly cannot get over how inexpensive these products are.

 I am eager to use these products with my kids and I believe they are going to be a great implement for learning. Plus, they seem enjoyable also. It goes outside of the box instead of just writing in a notebook.

So, here is my recent finds.

 

Chalkboard Clock.

My four-year-old is really showing an interest in learning to tell time. He is always asking what time it is and also trying to figure it out on his own. This product is perfect for only $3. You can write the numbers on the wooden clock yourself and move the hands wherever you please to show various times of the day. I will have him practice moving the hands himself and have him try to guess the times I give also. We have it hung up by his bed so every morning and night he sets the time before getting out of bed.

 

 

Chalkboard Sign.

Perfect for my ‘Mommin’ on a Budget’ motto. Only $5 for a perfect ‘first day’ and ‘last day’ photo of each school year. I was honestly contemplating buying a pricey sign for one picture, but once I saw this I was sold. I can erase it each year and use it for the next. Money well spent! I am really excited to use the same board for every year my children go to school. When the graduate, I will make a cute collage of each year.

 

 

Learning Books.

Just $1 each, that is it! They have multiple books to choose from. We picked up addition, subtraction, and printing practice for my oldest. He enjoys practicing addition on his fingers, so I am hoping these will get him more involved with mathematics. The printing practice will keep him up with writing his letters while he is not at preschool.

Alphabet Blocks.

These are for my girl, my youngest. I am so excited to start teaching her numbers and letters and these blocks will help tremendously! Since I am now staying home I do not foresee sending her to preschool any earlier than a year before kindergarten (maybe), so mama will be doing the teaching. She has already dug into them and enjoys playing with them, which is a plus. They also have adorable little pictures that you can match the letters to. You can get them for only $3!

 

 

Activity Paper Roll.

Thirty feet of fun! For only $3 you can hang this on your child’s wall and they can go to town with tracing numbers and letters, learning time, coloring, learning shapes, and plenty more! I am really going to take advantage of this for my oldest to help his spelling and time telling. I am going to have him trace his letters and then try to spell out words himself. I think he will really enjoy it.

 

Stay tuned for next month to see my next set of Target finds!

I hope you enjoy!

Awesome Target Finds for Kids: Under $5!

If you haven’t been through the Target ‘Bullseye’s Playground’ yet, you are missing out! I have found so many useful goodies in that little section for myself and for the kids. From house décor, to water bottles, to kid’s toys. It’s always an enjoyable surprise every time I visit the store. It’s always the first section we visit. Best part is, everything is $5 and under! You really can’t beat the prices of some of these knick-knacks.

We visited the store today, and since summer is half way over (unfortunately) and school will be back in session before we know it, I was able to pick up a ton of fun learning activities for the kids. I was honestly surprised how inexpensive these products were. I had to snag them up and share what I found. I’m sure I’ll be creating a part two to this post because I wanted to grab even more. Who knows, maybe it’ll be a monthly post, because you don’t even want to know how many items I usually walk away with.

This post is for the kids though. My son is only in pre-k this year two days a week, so he’s home with me a lot. I really want to make sure he keeps up with practicing what he learns in pre-k while also having some fun activities to do while we are at home.

Make Your Own Slime Kit. We opened this as soon as we arrived home. For only $3, this is an awesome craft to make! The kit comes with everything you need (besides hot water and two plastic cups). This was our first time making slime. So, with a failed attempt the first time, we had enough products to try a second time. It’s kept my kids occupied for hours. Mom win.

20 Count Modeling Clay. This twenty-piece set was only $3 and included 1 knife, 1 roller, 6 shaped cutters, and 12 clay sticks. It’s a great activity for children to be creative. The shaped cutters resemble animals so it can also be used as a learning activity for learning the colors of animals, or just for fun! If you want to make a purple giraffe, you do it!

26 Count Magnetic Numbers. For only $1! Yes, a DOLLAR! You get two of each letter 0-9 along with mathematical symbols. You can use these to help your children practice learning numbers, along with learning addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division! They stick great to the refrigerator or any metal you desire. I’m thinking of putting a metal board on my son’s wall in his room so he can practice whenever he wants. You can also use the back of the packaging to match the numbers to their outlines.

Dry Erase Lap Boards. These were also only $1! You really can’t beat it. These boards come with their own dry erase marker. The front is blank so children can use it to draw, write, or create whatever they wish. My favorite part of these boards is on the back. They have outlines of upper-case and lower-case letters along with numbers so children can practice writing their letters and numbers. If they mess up, they can just erase and try again. This is great for fun and learning.

Bubbles. While bubbles are usually inexpensive overall, my little one isn’t quite at the stage for mixing and creating things yet. She sure does love her bubbles though. To make it even better, it’s Minnie bubbles! She loves her some Minnie. These were only $3 and to my surprise it’s quite a large container of bubbles. They have multiple different characters to choose from.

Chips Clips. Okay, maybe this one is for mama, but for only $1 how can you resist! They are magnetic and come in different colors. I’m trying to teach my oldest who is four how to roll up chip bags and close them so they don’t become stale. These are perfect for that. Also, they are perfect for hanging art work from the kiddos on the fridge.

I am a Target mom for sure, and finding these steals make it even more exciting to visit each week! I’m excited to see what we find next time.
