Must Haves in a craft box (help!!)

I have markers, crayons, colored pencils, stickers, a glue stick, colored popsicle sticks, foam shapes, some sequence, and I just ordered those googly eyes and some feathers...what else should I get? I was thinking of some pompoms, but any and all ideas would be highly appreciated! Thanks!!

  • Pompoms are a good idea. Beads are also good (you can get large plastic ones for younger kids). Scissors and construction paper would be good and what about some neat paper punches? Yarn is a must have for my kids as well. Glitter is pretty but messy so I get glitter glue from the dollar store so there isn't such a mess when they are done. If you have a Dollar Tree, check there for kids craft supplies. Ours has lots of different things and they are so inexpensive.

  • crustation paper, foam pieces, craft ideas maybe ripped out from mags, ribbon, buttons, stickers,maybe even some of these cups where you color and make your own. Cookie cutters for day might want to even make and decorate cookies, play dah, scrapbook items like fancy paper, scissors. I hope that helps cause I need to do for my girls for the winter months ahead.

  • She has scissors and I just bought her a small stamp set. I was debating about pipe cleaners because if you cut them they're really sharp. (She also has paint and water colors)
