Check out this guide on the best craft supplies for kids.Activity supplies are always great to have on hand! Nothing is more annoying than to start an activity with your kiddos & not have half of what you need once you begin.

That’s happened to me more times than I can count. Which led to some frustration.

In order to save you that headache I’ve created this list of activity supplies to keep on hand. I personally use & love every item on this list.

Every item can be used for just about any activity including outdoor, science, game, & art activities.
