It’s officially summertime! The season of pool parties, BBQ’s, and water sports has finally arrived. Due to the nationwide pandemic, we’ve been home for a bit longer than usual, so keeping my daughter entertained has become a bit of a challenge. Thanks to Dollar General and their amazing summer guide, I’ve been able to pop in for all the summer items I need. From water toys, to food items, to puzzles and gamesDollar General has you covered. I created a fun list of things you can grab from Dollar General for some summertime fun to keep your little one entertained.

Water Play

Water Play is one of Sanai’s favorite things to do. Especially when she’s been in the house and has started to get cabin fever. I usually try and grab a few different types of toys so that she can be educated and entertained at the same time.

Dollar general really saved the summer for me and my family and it can do the same for you. I was actually able to save even more than these listed prices using the digital coupons on the DG App.  Before you go shopping for all your summer essentials, make sure you download the DG App to create your shopping list and looking for the best deals. Make sure you sign up for DGDC (DG digital coupons), to save on all of your purchases. The DG App has a DGDC for $5 off $25 on Saturday’s, so don’t miss this deal! Just because our summer celebrations look a little different this year, doesn’t mean that summer is cancelled. We can still have a safe and fun summer with our families in our own homes or backyards! Head over to Dollar General and check out all the things they have to offer this summer.
