I have a friend who work a preschool/daycare center. She was telling me that their art/craft supplies are extremely limited. In fact the center owner wants the teachers to buy their own supplies. I told her that I would gladly donate some of my craft stash and asked her what they need. She said anything kids between the ages of 2-6 can use. My question is besides paint and paper what else do you think they could use?  Thanks for reading!

I worked at a daycare. I was a preschool teacher. We had paints, paper, crayons, markers, material, felt, glitter, paper towel rolls, pipe cleaners, play dough ( it can be made I make it for my kids), anything really. I keep soda bottles, egg cartons, ribbon, I could go on and on lol

You should ask about the glitter though.  At my daughters preschool they can't use glitter because they might get it in their eye or something and it can scratch.  The teacher thinks its a rediculous rule, but just to be sure you should check on that.
