Hey guys! Today I wanted to share some of my favorite resources for some great, cheap preschool supplies. I have found so many budget-friendly items that we love, so I thought I’d compile some of our favorites here for you!

Just a quick rundown of the things that I think you need to get started with preschool at home-
Some basic storage for your supplies
Basic school & art supplies (think what they would need at school for kindergarten)
A few workbooks- letters, numbers, etc.. or flash cards
Books! Lots and lots of fun picture books.
I absolutely love the dollar tree for workbooks, since they are only $1, I have no problems using them right up. You can also get yourself an inexpensive laminator and laminate these pages. Then, a nice dry erase marker set means you can use them again and again!
Amazon has a few great workbooks, too.
Preschool Scholar Ages 3-5 (this is what we are currently using)
Big Preschool Workbook
Letter Tracing Ages 3-5
Number Tracing Ages 3-5
Preschool Practice Scissor Skills
I also love investing in the Wipe Clean Books – same benefits as laminating, without all the work!
Wipe Clean First Words
Wipe Clean Letters
Pre-K Wipe Clean Workbook
Wipe Clean Early Learning Activity Book
The Dollar Tree is a great resource for Flash Cards! Here are a couple they show online, but I’ve found all different kinds, just like these pictured that I found in store at my Dollar Tree.
There’s also a great selection of flash cards on Amazon.
The dollar tree is my absolute favorite place for storage container items. I was able to score some of these longer flat baskets for organizing activities for the day, and this great caddy we can take to the table that holds a few supplies. They have every size and variety of storage container you could ever want.
I have shared our learning setups a few times, but once again I am planning to grab one of these cubeical storage units for our Preschool area (aka our kitchen). Amazon has some great, really low price fabric bins for the cubeical units, and the dollar tree gets some occasionally, but there aren’t any at my store currently.
Next, here are some great learning games that my son loves. I usually save up my Swagbucks gift cards to purchase these for him. These are two of his favorites, Mini Muffin Match Up, and Sneaky Squirrel.
Finally, just for fun, here are a few of my preschooler’s FAVORITE books in case you need a place to start!
That’s it guys! I hope you have gotten some ideas for what you need for preschooling at home, and maybe even some activity ideas! Stay tuned, I’ll be sharing our preschool plans for March soon!
