When I was teaching, fun crafts were my favorite thing to plan. I loved creating relevant crafts that left room for lots of creativity from my students. And, as a mom, I feel the same way. My preschooler LOVES crafts with mommy!
As a mom, I don’t always have the time to plan like I did as a teacher, so I just make sure I always have any supplies we might want to use on hand.
Here are some of the supplies I always keep stocked up:
Toilet paper and paper towel rolls
Vinyl tablecloth--I lay this down for EVERYTHING!
Giving children lots of opportunities to create is so important for their development, so if you don’t keep craft supplies on hand, this list will give you a starting point. Now, go help your child create!
