Everything listed in our Baby Art Supply list is still valuable. But as your child grows they will be ready to explore new materials.
Keeping a trove of supplies on hand empowers you and your child to engage in learning whenever the mood strikes. You can pick up jars, small storage bins and cutlery organizers from places like the dollar store, a local thrift shop Ikea to house all your supplies and keep them organized.

- Glue (Liquid Glue and Glue Sticks)
