Now that your child is in school, it's time to stock up on school supplies and arts-and-crafts materials. A closet corner or desk drawer is a good place to store the goods.

Print out our checklist below so you'll always be prepared.

Kindergarten must-haves:

  • Colored pencils. Coloring takes longer with pencils, but kids like the variety.
  • Construction paper. You'll need it for collages, homemade books, and other art projects.
  • Washable markers. These are messy so you'll want to supervise.
  • Crayons. Buy the mega-pack with built-in sharpener, because you never know when you're going to need "burnt sienna" to color a barn.
  • Glue sticks. Most kindergartners don't understand how to use "just a touch" of regular glue, so it's best to go with glue sticks.
  • Pencils. Fatter pencils might be easier for your child to handle.
  • Poster board. Get white for sure, and other colors if you have room.
  • White paper. Heavier stock such as sketch-pad paper is best because markers won't leak through.
  • Safety scissors. They may be somewhat more difficult to use than regular scissors, but they're also the safest.
  • Tape. Buy the clear, double-sided kind.


  • Cotton balls. These are great for clouds, snow, white hair.
  • Aluminum foil. It's key for any project related to outer space.
  • Stickers. Give them as rewards for great work.
  • Glitter: It's messy, but kids love it; best to use it outdoors.
  • Feathers. They bring animal drawings to life.
  • Rubber bands. Use them to keep loose pencils and crayons together.
  • Thread. You'll need it for mobiles.
  • Popsicle sticks. For miniature building projects, they're the equivalent of two-by-fours.
  • Yarn or string. Use it for hair.
  • Pipe cleaners. You can find them in different colors at craft stores.
  • Empty shoe boxes. They're good for dioramas (miniature displays) or valentine boxes.
  • Buttons, ribbon, fabric pieces. Glue them onto crafts or pictures.
  • Wrapping paper: Use it to cover a valentine box or diorama.
  • Empty toilet-paper or paper-towel rolls. They're great for building cars or spaceships and for science experiments (such as listening to someone's heartbeat).
  • Colored felt. Cut it up to make pictures.
  • Old rags or T-shirts. They're good for cleaning up.
  • Parchment paper. Thin, opaque white parchment is great for creating "windows" on Popsicle-stick houses.
  • Clear contact paper. It's almost as good as a lamination machine. You can turn any drawing into a waterproof place mat, laminate parts of a mobile...The possibilities are endless.
  • Colored tissue paper. It makes great flowers.
  • Watercolor paints and brushes. Painting is a favorite (if messy) kid activity.
  • Styrofoam balls. Use them for model planets in a solar system; paint them with poster paint.
