If you’ve been on Pinterest lately, I’m sure you’ve seen the concept of Tot School floating around. I’m the Mama of a busy, curious 18-month old, so of course I jumped right on that train! I noticed that a lot of the teaching methods weren’t exactly budget-friendly. Me being me, I knew there was a way to create a Tot-School that is fun and frugal.
Dollar Tree was the first place I thought of to search for school supplies. For those of you who don’t have such a luxury in your area, a Dollar Tree is a store where everything is a dollar. My town recently expanded our Dollar Tree to include a freezer section, so my local store is one of the fully stocked locations.

Books and Activities
I plan on posting my “lesson plans” for Tot School, along with our frugal activities that we are doing. I plan on homeschooling my sons, so I think that Tot School sets the stage for a great learning experience.
We plan on utilizing our local library, going on free “field trips”, and using a lot of free printables!
Is anyone else Tot Schooling their toddler? What’s working for you?
