I created an art station for kids with products from Office Depot as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. #GearLove #GearUpForGreat
Arizona summers are like winters in most places, we hibernate inside away from harsh weather. My kids and I are going a little stir crazy this summer, so we headed to Office Depot to pick up supplies for a kid friendly art station. The kids and I have been busy crafting up a storm and keeping our minds off the 115 degree weather outside. I’m amazed at their creativity and what they come up with when I simply put the supplies in front of them without direction.
This is all the Office Depot gear that I can’t live without. Surprise, surprise, they are all craft supplies. From pom poms to paint, this is a great “must have” craft supply list to get you and your children crafting! Tons of fun projects can be crafted with these basic supplies. Office Depot had it all, everything from home office and school supplies to aisles full of craft supplies!
I needed the art station to be portable because we do a lot of crafting on our dining room table. I didn’t want anything too large or permanent so I could move it out of the way when we eat or when I can’t supervise my 2 year old around the markers. My solution was putting the supplies in mason jars and sticking everything in a basket. I can easily store the basket up high when not in use.
The mason jars make it easy to keep our supplies separated and organized. Way easier and more inviting than trying to get crayons or markers out of those little boxes. My kids can take out one mason jar at a time an easily pick up everything themselves. An organized crafting station also leads to more creativity for us.
