RUN to your local Target Dollar Section

Two of my obsessions collided today: Target Dollar Section and Valentine's Day. First thing to know, my birthday is on Valentine's Day and I love that day. I get so excited to see all of the pink, red, and hearts. I also love the Target dollar section. Sometimes I spend more in that section then I do in the whole store. So, today when I found Valentine's Day things in the dollar section I freaked out. 

One little dollar section secret I have learned is that things in this section do not last. I can't tell you how many times I have seen something there and then come back for it and it was GONE! So, I decided I better stock up while I had the chance. Here are some of my dollar section Valentine's Day goodies:

How cute are these dice? I can't wait to use them in a math center! 

I use these erasers as little math manipulatives. I won't tell you how many packages I bought, it's a little embarrassing haha.

We will use these for some sort of craft. I also use these as manipulatives for roll and cover games and for patterns.

I just love these!

I also bought a little cupcake rug to go in front of my water fountain/ sink area. Occasionally we have some problems with pushing and friends end up hitting their head on the water fountain. So, if I put a little rug there and explain to them that only the friend getting a drink can be on the rug it really cuts back on the water fountain vs. head collisions. I will take a picture of the rug in action. 

I hope you are on your way to Target now. Hurry!

My alarm is set for 5:45 tomorrow and I am off to bed. It will be our first day back tomorrow and we have kids. I am jealous of yall with a work day! Bleh. I am excited to see my little kinderbabies though! Goodnight. 


  1. I just bought 2 of those cupcake rugs - this is the 3rd year they've had them in the $1 Spot and I get them every year. My (future) classroom will be Cupcake-themed and I think they'd be excellent as reading spots

  2. Those dice are soooo cute! I was upset that our dollar section had literally nothing on the shelves when I went this weekend-but I guess if this is what they're restocking, then it was worth it! :) Thanks for the heads-up!


  3. I won't be able to make it to a Target until next weekend...I hope they'll still have that adorable stuff! I'm obsessed too! :)

  4. I got the same little Valentine dice. I LOVE them!! :) I also picked up a little black/white check paper tray from the dollar spot. Now my kiddos won't scatter their papers all over my desk when they turn them in ;) Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm a new follower ;)
