Dollar stores are also a great source of seeds and kids gardening supplies in the spring. Many of the seeds available are easy to grow and good for kids to learn with.

I agree with you. I regularly find craft supplies that are a fraction of the cost in craft shops, especially Dora stickers for my grand daughter - usually are rip-off prices elsewhere.

yeah just do your research on possibly harmful or toxic materials used in those cheap items, always do some serious research.
