Essential Kids Craft Supplies You Need In Your Arsenal

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!
