Supply List

Search in and around your house for discarded objects: bottle tops, buttons, screws, stickers, old small toys, combs, hairpins, feathers, old computer parts, leaves, branches and pebbles from the garden, etc. The more stuff on the table the more opportunity and excitement. None of the usual art project material (e.g., pipe cleaners) please! Put your supplies in bowls so they are easy to find.
