That depends on how you plan to do school and the curriculum you buy. I'm a big believer in hands on and craft. I think everyone should at least have a pair of child safty sissors, glue, paint, paper, googly eyes, pipecleaners and diffrent colourd card. You can make a lot of things with that. You will need to read through your curriculum to see what extras you will need. I can give you a whole list of my craft suplies if you like.
I basicly buy as the need arises.

Ooooo, you must be so excited!! Of course, by the time you read this, you'll have probably already gotten all of your supplies, but I'm going to throw in my 2 cents. I'd say Play Doh and cutters, construction paper, something to count with - I've got a box of chick peas, but you could buy those "official" counting bears - paints....I'm sure there are a ton of other things that you could have but I can't think properly right now. I think I'm going to get some Crayola air-dry clay for The Kids to play with this year.

JO, share your craft supply list!! I want to see it, oh List Queen!!

What a great list! I'm going to copy and paste it into the Arts and Crafts subforum!
OK, here's a question, though - what's clag glue? And a stainly knife? I hate to be missing out on all the good stuff!

your welcome guys. complete with my bad spelling .....lol

clag glue is a thick school type paper paste. You can tip it over and the glue dosn't spill. it's very good for when kids want to glue magazine pictures and stuff onto a sheet of paper. Foam animal shapes, and colourd craft match sticks can often awhile later, be pulled off and recycled. Not when the small artist is around though!

A stainly knife holds a line of razor type blades. lol now I'm scaring you ha Rather like one of those pencils that holds lead that you can put up or down. They are made from metal or cheaper ones in plastic. very usful for scoring a line along a laminated page or into thicker cardboard.

Ah-HA! It's so funny to me how things are called different names! Here, clag glue is paste and a stainly knife would probably be an exacto knife! tee hee!
