I’m a mother of two amazing young people, ages 2 and 15. Sometimes it feels like they are two peas in a pod, and often other times it feels like I am raising two “only child” children. My little one has renewed this part of my heart that reminds me that life is so simple and enjoyable. She is innocent. The world and all that’s in it is brand new to her. She literally laughs at everything. That’s why this fall I have decided to save some money, and DIY Halloween with the toddler for $10 or under at Dollar Tree!

Party Supplies, Costumes, and Everything For DIY’S!!

Walking through my local Dollar Tree was an amazing time!! You can use the store locator on DollarTree.com to find the one nearest you, or simply Shop Scary-Good $1 Halloween Deals at DollarTree.com! Not surprising, I walked out of my store with more than just Halloween supplies!

I decided that making a DIY Trick-Or-Treat bag was perfect for my little girl. This will be her first year going out!! And of course, she has to be dressed up as the princess that she is! We also picked up this package of “Mr. Potatoe Head- esque parts to use on our pumpkin next month!
I actually found this package of two tote bags and glitter glue in the craft section. I surely couldn’t pass up this opportunity! Now here’s the fun part- – –

Lay tote bag on the floor (or any flat surface)
Give toddler the glitter glue (Don’t worry, it’s non-toxic!!)
Let her go to town making her own creation!






Don’t forget to hang dry your bag!ย 








I wish I was able to capture the true beauty of this Halloween activity; our one year old Pekingese puppy sure wanted to get in on the fun as well! I am super excited for Halloween Day to come so my pretty princess can stroll about the streets, in her new princess items we bought for her, and gather me a bunch of candy for the first time! (Like how I said that?? Lol) Keep an eye out for those pictures!

ย Everything is just $1 when you shop DollarTree.com!! ย I can’t wait to see all of your Halloween pictures and crafts, and hopefully you bought them at DollarTree.com as well!!

  1. People seriously underestimate Dollar tree. Me, however love it Especially for little kids it’s amazing. I’ll have to see if our local store has those bags, like those becuase thats better than buying a pumpkin basket.

  2. It’s so cute that you’ve found an economical way to have fun with your child. It helps to spend less especially when they’re growing so fast. Enjoy!

  3. Dollar Tree is affordable and you made some great picks! also, loved the idea of drawing on a bag. Brilliant for little kids!

  4. I just love all the cute little and super affordable options. Our dollar tree is new and has so many cheap yet easy and cute ideas. Perfect for 1-2 times use and then stow away for play time until they “expire.” At which point, we can easily toss and re-buy again next time ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. How cool, I have a few friends with kids that are around this age and this would be fun for them to do with them now with halloween right around the corner. Thank you for this suggestion.

    1. I do!! If it’s a really greatly stocked store, I can find so many things I can use. Lol and trust me, sometimes they are two peas in a pod. My 15 year old son loves teaching her all these fun tricks to try to get on my last nerve and then they collaborate! They do have alot of fun together. I think it helps him keep his mind off of teenager things lol.

  6. Super Cute DYI! at the same time I love the dollar tree! I get so much stuff from there! Almost every holiday I am able to find something that goes great! Especially halloween and christmas!

  7. 2 and 15?! That’s crazy, but at least your 15-year-old can help out with the 2yo right? My mom used to make all my halloween costumes and I still look back on those costumes very fondly.

  8. Dollar Tree always have some of the cutest items for any season. I’m sure the little one enjoyed getting her items for Halloween.

    1. Lol they actualy get along really well! My 15 year old is determined to teach her the ropes on how to properly annoy me, so they love teaming up. And hes a great big brother, plays with her and Everything all the time! โค

  9. Definitely cool diy halloween ideas! No need to spend a lot, and save the money for a more important celebration.

  10. I wish we had a Dollar Tree in Malaysia. I seriously get jelly seeing people making great stuff using Dollar Tree items.

  11. Oh yes, the halloween season is here! Unfortunately it’s not a big thing where I live. It’s always nice when kids can be involved by themselves and see how the process goes.

  12. We have poundland which is similar to Dollar tree and it has a great selection of goodies, especially for Halloween. Its great that you got Halloween goodies for under ยฃ10 x

  13. We have a Dollar Tree near us and there really are some great deals to be had. I wish I’d have known of it when my kids were little. Holidays can get to be so expensive and why spend an arm and a leg when you don’t have to? x

  14. This looks so adorable and really perfect for Halloween party. I will definitely share this with my friends who love to celebrate Halloween party.
