Keeping a variety of art supplies out and available at all times has really encouraged my kids to create all day long.
Our art supplies are on our kitchen island. My kids gravitate there when they need to make something to add to their play or simply to take a break. We had an art supply carousel our old house but switched to the Boon container you see above. I like that the Boon vessel looks stylish and I don't mind having it out all the time. It sorts supplies nicely and holds a variety of materials, and I always have a flair pen when I need one.
Since we aren't directly supervising the art making at all times we keep it to low mess art supplies; thin washable markers, plenty of my favorite pencils, a variety of washi tape, scissors, glue sticks, and the creamiest colored pencils ever.
I find myself pausing to draw with the kids more, with materials always available.
What sorts of stuff do you always leave out for your kids?
Below are some of my kids and my favorites

Please Excuse the Mess
I'm slowly transferring blog posts from my previous website thebeeskneescousin.com It's taking a considerable amount of time to sort through things. Thanks for your patience.
