Kids love making things, and will really love making these do it yourself craft supplies.
Save used baby food jars, tomato sauce jars, and other containers to store your craft supplies in.
Another good investment is a sturdy table cloth, to avoid ruining your table, and for easy clean ups. I use ones made of oil cloth.
Make it easier to do arts and crafts by setting up an area in your home where you can store, and pull out craft supplies
Remember: It is okay to get messy if your kids get happy in the process!
You and your kids can make your own:
