“You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” –Maya Angelou
We don’t have a fancy system, just some stackable plastic drawers where all the kids craft supplies are kept in a closet in our office/craft room. If it doesn’t fit in these drawers, we don’t keep it + we don’t buy more supplies until there’s room in the drawers to store them. This helps keep the clutter to a minimum and helps motivate us to use up what we have!
**ETA if the link to the photo containers above is out of stock I found some here as well. If you’re in Canada you may be able to find similar containers at your local Dollarama.
Don’t forget that now is the best time of year to stock up on all those kids crafting essentials like gluesticks, markers, crayons, construction paper, etc while the prices are cheap! Our craft drawers are all restocked and we can’t wait to get crafting this new school year! You can check out some of our craft projects through the years here.
