I have seen lots of supply list for childcare
and honestly a lot of those list overwhelm me
I don't know where I would put all those things if had them
I like to keep my list simple
and if I have te extra stuff bonus
but I don't NEED those extra things!
(there is a difference between craft paint and finger paint)
--i truly believe you can paint with anything but...
a varity of different sized brushes
(i buy sponges from the dollar store and cut them up)
--these are the basics, but look around your house you will be AMAZED at what you can find to paint with. You don't need anything fancy! Kids just like to explore and discover!--
(the kids don't use the tacky or gorilla glue but I like to have it on hand)
craft paper/scrapbook paper
odds and ends:
lids of different sizes
--I am sure I am forgetting a few of my must haves but I can always add to that later!--
Where do I buy my supplies:
A majority of my supplies come from Hobby Lobby our local craft store
I also buy a lot of my stuff from dollar stores and dollar bins.
To craft with your children should not cost you a lot of money
start with the basics and you ca always add to it as time goes on!
Have fun learning, exploring, and discovering wih your children!
