I took a trip to my local Dollarama and found all of these items on December 4th & 5th, 2015. I do not know if the pricing or stock will be the same at your nearest Dollarama, but I sure hope you are able to find many of these same items =)! In the province where I am living, the economy isn’t great and many families are currently out of work. As Christmas time draws near I am sure there are many people feeling the pressure to give their kids a bountiful Christmas when you know you really cannot afford it. I hope this encourages you that you can get some pretty awesome gifts without spending a lot. Here are 86 ideas, enjoy!
Disney Milk Chocolate Minnie Mouse – $3.00
Disney Princess Notebook – $3.00
Schoolio Erasers – $1.25. My thoughts went instantly to my daughter’s tea party set. These mini erasers are the perfect size for her serving plates.
Animal Scissors – $1.25. My daughter owns a pair of these in the cow print and really likes them.
Studio Magnifying Glass $1.25. My daughter also owns this magnifying glass. It’s a lot of fun during the summer when we can take a closer look at nature.
Studio Fineline Markers $3.00. Pair these with one of the sketch books from Dollarama and you have hours of creativity for the creatives.
Chalkboard Pastels – $1.25
Simply Art Acrylic Paints -$3.00
36 Mini Erasers -$3.00. Kids have fun with these! My daughter doesn’t know they are erasers, to her they are fun figurines.
Lunch Kits – $3.00. These felt like they were made from quality materials.
Dora the Explorer Meal Time Set – $3.00
Craft Scissors – $3.00. I purchased these and I am happy to report that they work! The diagram on how you detach handles to swap out patterns is WRONG. Notice how it shows the scissors closed to remove the handles? They actually need to be open to do so.
Disney Photo Holder – $3.00. Note the original price on the card is $5.88.
Disney Princess Jewelry Holder & Mirror – $3.00. Note original price on the card is labelled $9.88.
Disney Frozen Canvases – $3.00. The light pink one on the right has some pretty sparkle detailing as well that you cannot see in the photo. I noticed that Walmart has one that is half the size of this with glitter accents that was close to $15.00.
Perler Silicone Pegboard – 2/$1.00. Have you seen how to use these? If not, Google it! So fun.
Craft Pack – $3.00
Scented Paint – $2.50. Pair this with one of their canvases (see below).
Dinosaur Canvas – $3.00
Skritch Skratch – $1.50
Boo Boo Buddy – $3.00. Cute design and I like that it has a cloth cover.
Disney Princess Press on Nails – $1.50
Minnie Mouse Nail Kit – $1.50
Minions Lip Gloss Watch – ?? Sorry! Didn’t get a photo of the price on this one.
Hello Kitty Nail Art Set – $3.00
Star Wars Digital Watch – $3.00
Paw Patrol Glider – $2.50
Edmonton Mini Hockey Stick – ?? Sorry, forgot to take a photo of the price on this one. Unlike the sticks beside it, this one has a durable design.
Snowball Maker – $2.50
Snow Brick Maker – $2.00. Remember when we had Target in Canada for a brief while? I first saw these there.
Bubble Bath – $2.00. I am including these in my children’s stockings this year.
Graduates Active Snacker – $3.00. Mom’s with little ones will appreciate this.
Dora the Explorer Bath Book – $3.00. There were a whole lot more of these bath books a few weeks ago. They have been cleared out for good reason, these are great little books. We own three.
Hello Kitty Stuck Book (left) – $3.00. It’s a story book with characters that suction to the pages to create different scenes. Hello Kitty Book & Blocks (right) – $3.00
Doc McStuffins Coloring Book with Stickers – $3.00. Nice white durable pages with fun stickers included.
Doc McStuffins Puzzle Book – $3.00
Strawberry Shortcake Pop-Up Books – $3.00
Hello Kitty Story Book & Magnetic Drawing Kit – $3.00
Play-Doh Mini 4 Pack – $2.50
Elmer’s Washable Jumbo Crayons – $2.00. Great for little hands! Pair with one of their coloring books or construction paper pads.
Dora the Explorer Water Magic – $3.00. These are fun! You paint with water and the color on the pages appear (with really neat patterns I might add). Once the page dries it can be re-used over and over again. The water pen they include is difficult to use and requires a lot of strength to squeeze out the water. We used a paintbrush instead with ours and it worked much better. Do use a small paintbrush though because too much water will destroy the pages.
Disney Frozen Magic Paints Posters – $1.25. I really like that the paints are included right on the page. I have not tried these out, let me know if you have. Did they work well?
