Do you pick them up in bulk once a year or buy as needed?
Where do you buy them?
I was thinking of placing a big order from a school supply catalog but thought I'd check with the experts first.

I start off with standard stuff in bulk, and then as the year progresses and I get new ideas I'll make smaller trips to the store.

Initially I'll buy:

Colored construction paper

Markers, colored pencils, crayons

Pencils, Pens

Glue sticks & the liquid Elmer's kind

A ruler (my perfectionist qualities will be passed down!)

Random assortment of stickers

Tape

Crayola Modeling play-doh


That's all I can think of off of my head, but I would start off with basics, and don't go overboard on a big order

 I buy whenever I see something on sale and put it up in my craft room. I am pretty well stocked. I buy at Walmart, Michael's, Home Depot and Lowes. Michael's has tons of kids crafts at great prices, too.

I typically buy as needed I have found a bunch of stuff that we use at Dollar Tree and then I have a larger list that I get from Michaels or Joann's.
