Arts and Crafts Supplies

It's easy to get those little ones busy with their creative juices if you have the right tools and supplies on hand.

We have a list of arts and crafts supplies that you can easily find at your local craft store, office supply, discount store, dollar store, even from yard sales.

When you see these items on sale be sure to pick them up and store them in clear plastic bins or boxes.  You can easily sort the items into the clear bins or totes, tape a tag on the side to remind you whats inside, then store them in your closet or on your craft shelves.

Then, when that little one is itching to create something, you'll both be ready.

Don't feel like you have to have everything on our list. Simply pick up the items that work best in your craft space and with your little one.

Do you have a great game or craft that you do with nursery rhymes?

Children love to play as they learn! Whether that's clapping to the rhythym of the verse, acting out the characters, playing games or creating great artwork!

We would love to hear about games, arts and crafts, fingerplays, anything that you do with your special little one to make nursery rhymes a fun interactive learning activity.
