Top Ten Tuesdays- Must Have Art Supplies for Kids

Whether you are a parent, art teacher, child care provider, or an elementary teacher, the following is a great reference to have. It is a very general list that encompasses children of all ages in the area of both art and crafts. Remember, regardless of the age of the child "It is the process not the product."

  1. Paper. various sizes, colors and weights.
  2. Glue. White Glue, glue gun, glue sticks and decoupage glue.
  3. Paint. Acrylic, tempera, finger and even oil!
  4. Chalk. Great for both indoors and out!
  5. Thread and yarn.
  6. Paint, tooth and sponge brushes for painting.
  7. Recycled Material (jars, paper tubes, tissue boxes, etc.) 
  8. The great outdoors- leaves, sticks, rocks, etc. 
  9. Anything to color and draw: food coloring, crayons, markers, colored pencils, oil pastels, chalk pastels, pencils, charcoal pencils and chalk. (Chalk is great for both indoors and out!)
  10. Anything to cut: scissors, scrap-booking decorative scissors, etc.

    I hope you stop by my blog.

  2. I have to admit that I have eliminated paint from the house because it just got to be too much. We have lots of paper, coloring books crayons, colored pencils and markers. And I have more than one wall drawing just from that. When the paint was getting into without me knowing about it. we had get rid of it for awhile! i feel bad because the fun of mixing colors with paint is the best but my house just couldn't handle anymore surprise art anywhere

  3. That's too funny! I keep my paints locked up for that same reason. I have a mural that I painted in each of my kids rooms- so they always see me painting on my kids walls- it doesn't help!

  4. Great list! Thanks for sharing! Doing art with kids is lots of fun :)
