Target Dollar Section = Hidden Goldmine

I have been SO excited to write this blog post! A few weeks ago, I took a trip to Target and as always came face to face with the Dollar Section. This is extremely well planned out on Target’s part, because before you can get to any other section of the store, you must pass the dollar section. This is a dream for me, especially now that all the back to school items have made their way to the shelves (does anyone else feel like July is a tad bit early for this??) However I still show my support and wanted to share a few treasures I found there with you…

JUMBO CARDS: ANIMAL SOUNDS & ANIMAL ACTIONS ~

If you’re like me, when it comes to animal sounds, I tend to stick with the basics: cows say moo, cats say meow, etc, etc. But the crafty people that made the cards pictured above came up with ones that are far more interesting. Some of my favorites? Rabbits snuffle (sniff sniff); beetles tap-tap-tap click!; rhinos huff huff; giraffes bleat; and zebras woop! woop! woop! I love the creativity!

Some examples of actions: ants march; goats frolic; ducks dwadle; hamsters nibble; lions watch and wait; and lizards scurry. These cards are great for teaching new vocabulary words!

ALPHABET BINGO ~

Comes with 8 BINGO cards, 42 Alphabet cards, and 70 BINGO Chips

U.S. ANIMALS FLASHCARDS & INSECTS AND SMALL CRITTERS FLASHCARDS ~

The U.S. animals flashcards include: sea otters, raccoons, prairie dogs, badgers, white-tailed deer, roadrunner, and more. Each flashcard has factoids (such as scientific class, family, habitat, and top speed) on the back.

The insects and small critters cards include: gypsy moth caterpillar, praying mantis, dragonfly, stinkbug, cricket, and more. Each flashcard has fun facts on the back as well. (Yes, everything listed here is $1!!!)

NUMBERS & SHAPES CARDS ~

(These ones are pretty self explanatory!)

I have already started using these cards in my sessions and they have been a huge hit! What are YOUR favorite things to buy in the Target Dollar section and how have they been used in your sessions?
