My kids love making arts and crafts. I have an arts and crafts kit. I keep all of the basics like glue, crayons, markers, scissors, colored papers, card stock, pipe cleaners, glitter, string, paints, paint brushes, cotton balls, material, and leftover supplies from previous projects I have worked on.
Every once in awhile I take my kids to a craft store and let them pick out some projects. They love getting to pick out their own projects and even come up with some creative ideas of their own. They both love this! I love having the kit because it allows them to be more creative. The last picture is a book that my 7 year old son created from the supplies in our kit.
