Kids Craft Supplies - Cool Gift Idea
Kids Craft Supplies are a great gift idea! A couple of years ago, when my daughter was turning four, I was extremely strapped for cash. I love birthdays, so I was in a serious state of panic over my inability to buy her all the presents that I normally would have. Like all parents, I love my kids and I want them to have wonderful, exciting birthdays. The fact that I didn't think that I could manage it that year was really depressing for me.
Then, I came up with an idea...really one of the best ideas I've ever had. I decided to take what little money I had for her birthday and spend it on craft supplies. I started by buying a medium sized clear rubbermaid box, the ones that can be slid under a bed.
Then I spent what I had left on all the fun kids craft supplies that I could afford. I bought crayons, markers, colored pencils, stickers, paints, construction paper, popsicle sticks, glue, glitter, scissors, cookie cutters (for making shapes), clay, etc. I wrapped each present individually and then put all of them inside the plastic box and tied it with a bow.
When my daughters birthday came, she was so excited about all the presents that she had to open and she absolutely loved all her new stuff. She played with that stuff far more than she ever played with any Barbie or Dora toy that I had ever given her. On top of that, they allowed her to be creative! She's seven now and she still asks for an art box for every birthday, and Christmas too!
If you are looking for a cute, cost-effective gift to buy for a child in your life, consider buying Kids Craft Supplies and making it into a fun and useful present.
Start collecting when you pick up your back-to-school supplies. usually at target or staples, you can pick up a bottle of glue for 10 cents as opposed to $2.39 any other time of the year, or a 24-pack of crayons for a nickel - and we all know how expensive crayons can be! (and this way if they break one, it's less than a penny a crayon.) we also get a case of single subject notebooks for a dime a piece - $4 for the case. there's never a shortage of paper for artwork, letters they want to write, etc.
We stock up on art supplies during the fall clearance time and use them to make inexpensive birthday gift baskets. Most people can always use more supplies.
