In my quest to achieve maximum organization throughout my home (Ha!) I recently made-over the craft cabinet. I purchased a few bins from the $$$ store and amazing things happened! Unfortunately, I forgot to take a before photo. But trust me, things were shoved, crammed, and falling out! Now it it (almost) pure bliss. We are getting a little to big to fit in this little cabinet.
In this cabinet I keep all of the craft items the children do not need permission (or supervision) to get out. They have free reign here. And they like that. I have put together a list of child friendly items that are perfect for them to get out on a rainy, bored, snowy day.
- Construction Paper
- Paper plates
- Dried beans (split peas are my fav. My grandmother always had those for me)
- Pipe cleaners
- Glue sticks and Elmers glue
- Paper lunch bags
- Craft kits (martha stewart are good-so are foam craft kits from Michael's)
- Clay, plastic knives, toothpicks (i don't leave play-doh in there b/c that need supervision!) :-)
- Coloring books, crayons (I just purchased the twist-ups from Crayola-Love em!!!)
- Foam stamps and washable markers (Have them rub the stamps with markers instead of ink pads)
- Pencils, rulers, erasers, notebook paper
- Stickers, foamies, gems
- Washable water colors, water color paper
- Child friendly scissors
- Tissue paper and crepe paper (great for "stained glass and making flowers)
- Popsicle sticks
- Child's Smock!
I hope this list helps and inspires you to create a cabinet of fun! If you have other items you use please share. And enjoy my "after" photos.
Tomorrow I will be showing you what else I used those photo boxes for. I love it and I am so excited!
