Kids Craft Essentials

This article was first published waaaay back in 2007 but Ali Edwards is still going strong.  We like that!  If you’re into scrapbooking with your kids or you just want some ideas – we encourage you to take  a look.  Enjoy!


Recently Ali Edwards wrote an article in her e-zine about her essential scrapbook supplies. The essentials are just the kids craft essentialsbare minimum you need to get going. It got me thinking about what my essential supplies for working on crafts with my girls are. Here’s what I’ve got so far:

  • Crayons (and lots of them)
  • Blunt-tip Scissors
  • Pencils
  • Construction Paper
  • School Glue
  • Scotch Tape
  • Markers
  • Ruler
  • Eraser

What craft supplies for your kids can you not live without? Be sure to leave a comment so we can add them to our list and then come back next week for a list of some fun extra things to have on hand for crafts with kids.
