Art and Craft Activity Supplies and Storage Holiday List
One of my favorite things to purchase are art and craft supplies for my kids.
Some of these they get access to and some they don’t as there may be smaller pieces, or I want to keep it all organized. 🙂
Art and craft activity supplies are not necessarily a gift that will be given to them as is.
Rather, it’s a gift for them once you use some of these products in a fun learning activity, or a sensory bin!
What I like to do is once I purchase pom poms or wool balls, I’ll add them to a storage bin that corresponds to them and whenever I set up a fun activity for my kids, I bring them out!
Keep in mind, some of these supplies may be small so parental supervision is always advised.
Have you checked out our Toy Gift Guides for 1 year old, Toddlers, Preschoolers, and 5-6 year olds? So many amazing toy ideas. Enjoy!
What are activities for children?
This is a fun question to answer. This question comes up on the G when I enter arts and crafts supplies for children.
To learn more about some fun sensory activities we love in our home, check out this right here.
In a nutshell, activities are a fun and engaging set up you set forth for your child.
It can be anywhere from a learning activity, sensory activity, indoor/outdoor activity, fine motor activity, gross motor activity…
So many different types of activities!
And, the wonderful thing about setting up an activity for your child is that you can make it anything you want it to be.
If your child is reading a certain book from the library, you can set up a fun activity that incorporates the colors of that certain book.
If your child is experiencing different emotions, you can create a sensory bin to stimulate their senses and in turn calmly engage.
This is where arts and crafts can come into the mix…
What you add into these activities can look something like a pom pom, a fine motor tool, tape to create an obstacle course, magnet letters for a fun find the letters in the sensory bin game.
What should be included in a preschool art center storage or home?
This is a question asked when I search through internet.
