  • They use only a few craft supplies & each has a shopping list.
  • Each kids craft is provided step by step – with pictures too.

These crafts are handy to take along to school, parties, or just the kitchen table! It gives you the ease of steps and an end goal, so you don’t have to try to create these yourself.

Must Have Craft Supplies For Kids

When you start crafting you will realise that there are some craft supplies you use over and over again! It is a great idea to keep a supply of these in your cupboards at all times.

A little hint here, make sure they are either well hidden or in a lockable area – I have learnt this the hard way, as my little girl uses all my supplies as soon as I turn my back. Then when I plan out a nice craft, usually on a wet Sunday afternoon, I have nothing left!! 

If you were only going to buy 3 things I would say colored paper, scissors and glue. You would be totally shocked at what you can create with these three things.
