We have a school supplies box at home. This does not 100% guarantee we don’t have to run to the nearest bookstore for an emergency need but it pretty much covers what the children need to bring to school on a short notice:
- 1/8 and 1/4 illustration board
- pens of varying colors
- bond papers of varying sizes
- colored papers, craft papers, art papers
- markers of different colors
- tapes like masking tape, clear tape, packaging tape and Mat tape.
- scissors, cutters
- folder and brown envelopes of different sizes
The kids have their own supplies that they bring to school too. I know this is kinda expensive but it is more expensive to go to a school supplies store than just to look if we have what they need in that box.
