We buy and collect our art and craft supplies from a number of places. Below is a list of shops we’ve used, and some ideas on where to find a variety of crafting and art materials. Crafting with kids doesn’t have to be expensive, but it should always be fun!

  • Riot Art & Craft
  • Educational Experience – educational supplies, art and craft materials
  • Modern Teaching Aids – educational supplies, art and craft materials
  • Lincraft
  • Bunnings Warehouse
  • Officeworks
  • Spotlight
  • Think Bowtique – hair accessory making supplies
  • Apikali – modern cloth nappies and eco living store
  • Kmart
  • Big W
  • any discount shop, such as The Reject Shop, has a range of basic craft items and stickers
  • supermarkets also have some basic items, such as cornflour, food colouring, glue, stickers, etc
  • we collect nature items, such as leaves, acorns, flowers, tree bark, pebbles, feathers
  • collect ribbons and gift wrap, including tissue paper and cellophane
  • collect packaging materials, such as cardboard boxes, cardboard tubes, bubble wrap, egg cartons, plastic take-away containers, yoghurt tubs (washed thoroughly), plastic bottles and lids, plastic mesh bags
  • magazines, catalogues, postcards and Christmas/birthday cards can be a good source of pictures
  • fabric and yarn scraps if you know a sewer or a knitter, and wood offcuts are useful too
