I have a wonderfully stocked arts and crafts closet that I've been working on for months now. What I have noticed is that it's not all that easy for the kids to access what they would like, especially for drawing. So I set up our dining room table as a permanent spot for drawing. I went to IKEA and purchased a wood lazy susan for $7.99 and five steel buckets for $1 each. I also purchased some colorful easy to clean place mats for $2.99 for four. The buckets have markers, scissors, glue, tape, crayons, and colored pencils. I also left out a stack of plain white paper. I hope this encourages more art making.
