When I was a child my mom always had a ton of art supplies available to me and I think that this played a major role in my passion for creativity. I am a play therapist and I love using expressive arts with children. When I was an a counseling intern I had an internship at a place in Fort Worth TX called “The Art Station” where we used expressive arts with children in therapy. Incorporating art into your home is a great way to help your children express themselves and get creative!
I have a 2 year old and I wanted to be able to do arts and crafts with him as part of our daily routine but I needed to be able to put these crafts away when I did not want him to get into it. This art cart has been the perfect solution!
This art cart is the perfect solution to keep your kiddos entertained over the holidays and also makes a great Christmas present! I plan to use this cart with my child over the holidays and then he will get new supplies for Christmas to restock what we have used.

Paint Bottles I like to use these paint bottles and squirt small dots of a plate and let my child use the paint. The children anti spill paint cups are a nightmare in my opinion because toddlers mix colors and it ruins the paint immediately
These Tempera Paint Sticks are my TODDLERS ABSOLUTE FAVORITE ART MATERIAL RIGHT NOW!!! THESE KEEP HIM ENTERTAINED LONGER THAN ANYTHING!!
I like to use White Card Stock Paper because it is sturdy with the paint sticks, paint, glueing etc.
Jumbo crayons (great small toddler fingers)

These are my favorite craft paper plates. Children can decorate them and make a ton of different crafts out of them but I also use them to put the paint on to give it to my child. I put small tiny dots of paint of different colors around the plate and let my child use that to paint with.
Stickers I like to have a variety of themes to help encourage language development
These are my favorite water colors for older kids
These are MY FAVORITE WOODEN PLAY DOUGH STAMPERS
