Crafting with your little ones is such an awesome tradition to start. As soon as my girls were old enough to start crafting with me, we began a never ending love of making things together. It was a way for us to spend quality time together that didn’t break the bank. Construction paper, stickers, and glue.. it’s all cheap, which I’m a huge fan of, haha. Over the years we have made seemingly every type of crafting project and several of the are listed here on my site, which I will post for you at the end of this post. For now, let’s dive in and see all of the essential kids craft supplies I keep on hand!
