DIY & Crafts: It’s All About Blocks! What Will You Build?

Blocks are one of my kids’ favorite toys to play with. No matter how old they get, they are never too old to keep wanting blocks. However, building block sets can get expensive, especially when buying a variety.

The other day when I was in my local Dollar Tree, I stumbled across blocks, for just $1 each! I was amazed at their selection because they had everything from base plates and figures to actual sets like cars and landmarks. Their selection was truly amazing, plus they were even compatible with the blocks we had at home.


Check out some of my favorite finds below!
