Here’s the latest video in our Kids in the Craft Room series, helping to get kids crafting. Today we’re talking all about basic craft supplies to have on hand. I’m sharing my 5 favorites and my daughter shares her 5 favorites too. With these 10 must have craft supplies, the kids will be ready to craft.

I have to say that pipe cleaners and googly eyes are my top 2 must have craft suppliesBut if you know me or my blog at all, you probably already knew that! Below is a photo of the supplies we’re sharing. Watch the video to see what we have to say about them all!

All of these craft supplies can be found at your local craft store, Michael’s Crafts, JoAnn’s Fabric, Walmart, and Target. You can also purchase these supplies online at
