Ok I just got the Artistic Pursuits book today..book one k-3... so what items do you think are a must to have 2 of( ya know things D and Z can't share)? Can I really get them cheaper at Michael's verses ordering one of the bundles online?? I just want to have my ducks in a row before I drive all the way across town to Michaels..gas for that is almost as much as shipping now..@@

Michaels is definitely cheaper than those bundles probably because they come in a bag to hold everything - I just put the stuff in a plastic storage container that fits nicely on the shelf - and then you'll need some doubles of things. If you sign up for The Knack (teacher's corner on Michaels web site) you'll get coupons every so often and they are often 10-25% off your WHOLE purchase. Homeschoolers are welcome to sign up and they even have an option on the sign-up form to say you are a homeschooler.

Anyway, you need two watercolor pads, two drawing pads, two ebony pencils, two paintbrushes, two scissors, two glues (you probably already have those anyway), two gum erasers are nice but not absolutely necessary (they are only like a dollar, though, so no big deal getting two), and you need more than 4 pounds of clay (we got 6 pounds).

My kids are LOVING it! We've done three lessons so far and they get so excited when it's art day. I've already bought the second book (on sale at the curriculum fair plus no shipping).
