Next time you go to through out an old spoon or another household item, stop and ask yourself: “Can I use this in any crafty lessons we will be doing soon?”
When you are walking through the dollar store, check every aisle you walk down: Fake flowers, toy bugs, glue, markers… the list goes on and on.
While making your lesson plans, and you know there are crafty lessons coming up, make notes of items you will need. Fur? Glitter? Pipe cleaners? Scrapbook paper? An old book? You may be amazed with what your imagination gives you to be in need of!
Never limit yourself. But don’t go crazy breaking the bank either. Use discount stores, remnant bins at fabric stores, clearance racks, etc. Most crafts are not going to be saved for more than a season, so there is no point in spending a fortune on them.
I hope you have found this series beneficial to your homeschool. It’s been a lot of fun to write!
