These are some of our favorite art supplies when we get creative. All would make great gifts!
Roll paper - we love to tape this to the floor or the wall and just create. Also fun to use to trace each other.
Arts and Crafts Library - this box has EVERYTHING in it for kids to be creative. We've had it for years and still have a lot of supplies left.
Watercolor journal set - we picked this set up at a small shop in Cold Spring, NY. We were told they are "special" watercolors - and they really are. They come with a watercolor pen which is great for minimal mess.
Rock crayons - these crayons are just plain fun!
Watercolor paper - I think this paper is the best for painting with watercolors.
Watercolor markers - this set of markers is expensive but it has so many colors and they draw beautifully. My kids reach for these the most when coloring.
Ooly Paint Sticks - we love all things Ooly and these paint sticks have been a favorite for years. They're great to draw on the roll paper with.
Watercolor palette - this palette has so many colors that kids can create anything they want.
Rainy Dayz Gel Crayons - another Ooly product. These are great for exactly that - rainy days when kids are stuck inside. They can draw all they want on the windows and it washes off.
