Crayons, Markers, Paint, Play dough, Clay, gluing, cutting (or the beginning of cutting), threding, etc. You can get lots of supplies at Walmart and the dollar store. Don't go cheap on crayons, markers or paint though...sometimes those aren't washable. Get the good stuff that says WASHABLE! I got some wonderful supplies at a Teacher supply store including some no spill paint cups with lids, tempura paint, and scissors that only cut paper (not hair or clothes). I got a book of toddler crafts from the book store. A lot of them involve stuff you have around the house and construction paper and glue. It tells you what shapes to cut out and then you sit down with your toddler and put the shapes together to make a picture. (We made a Jellyfish out of construction paper, paint, and a paper plate the other day). Get some fruity o's and some yarn (wrap some tape around one side to make it stiff) and make some necklaces!
