  • Pipe cleaners, pasta, markers, feathers, glue, stamps and ink pad, googly eyes, foam stickers, paper, crayons, playdoh...

    I can't think of any crafty thing I would not put in there, I mean at that age crafts need to be supervised anyway. So I would go whole hog!

  • Construction paper, ribbon, craft glue (not just elmers), pipe cleaners, buttons, glittler glue, craft sticks (popsicle sticks), foam pieces (cutouts & stuff), felt, finger paints, crayons, tape...Oh, I could go on & on!
    Definately some wet ones, a table cloth, a smock or apron or old adult tshirt.
    Oh, and don't forget butcher paper to glue/tape all the fabulous creations too (so Mom & Dad can still see the refigerator), and a disposable camera to take pictures of all of the creations too!

  • If I had the money to do what I really wanted to... a pencil box, colored pencils, crayons, stickers, coloring book and colored paper, ruler, stencils, maybe a glue stick and safety scissors if the parents are okay with it, washable stamp pad and stamps.
