Arts and Crafts


Arts and crafts have always been a favorite part of our homeschool days.

We have several plastic containers that we organize creative materials in, such as-

  • tissue paper
  • wax paper
  • construction paper
  • paper plates
  • lunch sacks
  • poster board
  • cardboard tubes
  • empty cardboard boxes (tissue boxes are great)
  • cotton balls
  • pom poms
  • chenille sticks
  • glitter, glitter glue
  • Elmers glue, glue sticks
  • Mod Podge (a must at our house!)
  • scotch tape, masking tape
  • scissors (shaped and regular)
  • hole punch
  • string
  • ribbon
  • craft sticks (thin and wide)
  • modeling clay
  • chalk pastels
  • colored pencils, crayons, markers
  • water color paints, tempera paints
  • paint brushes (assorted, but especially the foam kind)
  • stickers
  • stencils
  • etc.

Make sure you visit these fun kid craft sites- Activity Village and DLTK’s


For some formal art lessons, I love the book, How to Teach Art to Children (Evan-Moor).

For free chalk pastel tutorials, visit Hodgepodge. Marcus has been loving her site lately!
