Easter Items I Always Buy at Dollar Tree

I will say, the majority of Easter items at Dollar Tree are worth the cost.

With that being said, here are a few Easter items that I always buy at Dollar Tree…

Name Brand Candy

Anytime I can find name brand candy including Easter chocolate, I get that instead of the off brand. I find it typically tastes better and my kids enjoy it more.

This year, I found several name brand Easter chocolates like these Fruity Pebbles and Rice Krispies kind.

Plastic Easter Eggs

Dollar Tree has some of the most unique and cutest plastic Easter eggs.

This year they have quite a few new egg designs too like look at how cute these car eggs are, love the dinosaurs and these adorable mermaid clamshell ones!

Easter egg dyeing kits

One of my favorite finds are these Easter egg dyeing kits and they even have themed ones too!

Easter Baskets

Let’s be honest, unless you are really good about reusing the same baskets every year, spending more than $1.25 is a total waste. Kids break the baskets or they get lost so, I stick to the dollar store for Easter baskets.

Plus, they have a ton of different colors, sizes and designs to choose from.

Easter Grass

I tend to skip the Easter grass (to help the environment) but if you use it, get it from Dollar Tree.

This year, I actually found Peeps Easter Grass that actually smells like Peeps marshmallows. It smelled really good through the package!
