Ready to buy arts and crafts supplies and don’t have a clue where to start or what to buy? Yup, buying supplies can be intimidating especially if you don't know what works well for kids. That's why we created this checklist! Keep these supplies on hand so you can tackle your next Art & Craft DIY project with ease.


Stick this to that! Always try and have a variety of glues suitable for more than one substrate.

Masking, double sided or clear, you can use it on multiple areas of your project.

Store your craft scissors separate from your kitchen scissors to ensure they stay sharp!

  • Cut ‘n Paste
