  1. Glennen says

    Plain old markers are the very favorite around here. Congrats on 6 years! Your blog is wonderful and inspiring!

  2. Amanda C says

    We love all art supplies but our favorite basic supply has to be colored pencils. We can color, draw, write with them and I don’t worry about them melting if one gets left in the car or windowsill – so I let my girls take them wherever they want.

  3. Maggie says

    My kids are loving the new liquid watercolors they got for Christmas, and I love how wall-worthy they are. :)

  4. says

    Congratulations on 3 years! We have certainly had so much fun doing art activities that you recommend, and you have inspired us so much to do art! We love it!

  5. says

    How fun! I’m saving up for some liquid watercolors right now. Hopefully it’ll be in our budget by summer. This would certainly make it come quicker!
    We just bought chalk pastels and oil pastels for Christmas and we’re having a lot of fun experimenting with those right now.

  6. Dawn Lange says

    I think I entered with rafflecopter! Thanks for the fun today, Jean. And congratulations on 6 years! I think I will enter all of the giveaways today since I have so many little ones to entertain here.

  7. Samantha K says

    My son lives just about every art material! Some days he is a painter, other days he’s a glue kind of guy – gluing anything he can find in his art bins, or drawing pictures for me out of glitter glue!
    Thank you for this opportunity – happy blog birthday!

  8. Amy says

    My little one loves to paint and my older ones love to draw/sketch. They aren’t tied to any one product but enjoy using all different items to pain/draw on and with! Paper, cardboard, homemade paint, veggie dyes, etc.

  9. Hannah says

    We love markers and paints and clay! My six year old has recently focused mostly on colored pencils, however. Little sister (4 years old) will do anything that’s messy, particularly if she can cut it out and glue it to random stuff later. Glitter is a bonus! :)

  10. Delores says

    well, by the end of the day I am sure you will be a pro at the rafflecopter thing!
    I just recently discovered your blog, and it is great for me. I am not into arts and crafts with the kids (MESS!), but I know that I need to make more time for it and your work inspires me. Thanks!

  11. Brandy Hoot says

    An all-time favorite around here is paint. The older children are graduating into acrylic paint while the two younger still use watercolors.

  12. [email protected] says

    My grand kids would love to have this to add to our art kit

  13. Tina says

    Right now the favorite thing to do is pick up some paper, and absolutely any type of paint there is and just paint their little hearts away.

  14. Meghan says

    I love your blog! I am a K-6 art teacher, with 550+ students on an annual budget of $250. Your tips help me a lot!!

  15. says

    My son LOVES paint. His creations make for GREAT wrapping paper. He also loves to glue cut-outs from old magazines. I love the flow of his imagination and where each project takes him. It’s truly fascinating to watch. More art= less begging for screen time!

  16. Kathy says

    My daughter’s favorite art supplies right now are gel pens and large sheets of paper (18″x24″ or bigger)…the larger the better!

  17. Lizabeth says

    I teach a free homeschool art class. This would be most helpful. Thanks for offering such a terrific giveaway!

  18. Michelle says

    My kids love paint….puff paint, water colors, regular paint…heck even bubble bath paint…

  19. Kathleen says

    We would love love to win this. We always wanted to try out those liquid watercolors…It’s gonna happen this year for sure, regardless :-) So favorite art material huh… I’ve got 3 boys, one definitely clay, the other one likes to draw and the 3rd one he likes it all…hmmm, paint?

  20. Nicole says

    Congratulations on six years! My favorite art supply is paint, but my daughter would likely say “glitter!” Thanks for all the great ideas.

  21. Diane Slone says

    right now, my daughter’s favorites are all sorts of papers for making collages, paints, and oil-based paint pens (she just got into making Gary Hirsch bots). In general, she loves all sorts of art materials, and I just wish that I had the ability to keep her in great supply of all types. Winning this would really make her year!
    This blog has brought so many reminders of projects, and some good new ideas as well. I’m grateful to have access to someone with the creativity that I lack, so that I can grow in my ability to provide good/constant invitations to create to spur on my daughter’s imagination. Thank you!

  22. Geri Green says

    I have been wanting to try liquid watercolor paints. I have seen so many wonderful uses for them. I would love to win!

  23. Heather says

    My boys would love some fresh art supplies! They go through paint supplies like it’s their job… because it is. :)

  24. Shawna says

    Such a great idea for home days. My daughter loves to make pictures and gifts for any reason.

  25. Kimberley says

    My daughter would love this! We love fresh art supplies…especially with spring time around the corner…we love to paint outside too..

  26. [email protected] says

    Love your blog?

  27. Kelly says

    I’ve never ordered from DSS and have been hoping to soon. Especially interested in the liquid watercolors because you recommend them so highly! Thanks for the giveaway.

  28. jennifer fraunfelder says

    My girls LOVE art ! Their most favorite material or media to use is paint ….. any kind of paint. After that it’s glue …. glitter glue, especially. Give them a few blank sheets of paper and/or construction paper and pull out the art supplies and they are set for hours. We change out their art creations regularly. Our hallway is filled with their drawings and paintings as well as a string of Christmas lights … it’s our mini gallery. lol

  29. Petra OS says

    I don’t know that I could pick a favorite. He loves them all and hasa new favorite from one day to the next!

  30. Annette says

    I love their liquid watercolor paints and I’d love to try some of their other products too. Thanks!

  31. Diana Cote says

    its a tough one, she loves markers because she can be more detailed with it and the colors are brighter and don’t blend as much but she loves the texture of paint and she loves stamping her hands, feet and any shapes she can.

  32. Jen says

    My daughter loves all art supplies! Her fav right now are paints. Give her a pile of supplies and she will be busy for hours! :)

  33. Jennifer says

    We use their paint up so quickly, and we can always use that, but the kids would love to try the craft tape. I never seem to be able to afford that! Thank you!

  34. Kristin says

    My children, even down to our two year old, love Sharpies. I have had other parents question why I would allow them to use permanent markers, but for me it’s simple. My children prefer the look of a drawing with Sharpies to one with regular markers and I’m ok with messes. I request that they only use them at the kitchen table and that they wear an apron or smock. We have never (yet) had an issue with coloring on anything other than paper or toys (we do allow that!).

  35. Danielle says

    Art is something that I really want to foster in my child. She’s still just a toddler, but I’ve recently started building her art supply collection. So this would be an amazing thing to win!

  36. Mary says

    We had been wanting to try the liquid watercolors, but a chance for a whole box of such useful art supplies – how great! Thanks!

  37. [email protected] says

    Love reading your blog! Great job.

  38. Jennifer says

    My kids love that they are old enough to use the hot glue gun now. There’s a lot to be made with hot glue and popsicle sticks. :)

  39. says

    My 4 year old son loves ANY art that includes his construction machines :-) My 10 year old daughter has recently enjoyed collaging.

  40. Tina Powell says

    I would love to win this for my granddaughters. As a Mimmy to two creatives girls, aged 5 and 10 this would be perfect for our weekend art sessions.The craft tape is their current favorite!

  41. Rachel says

    Washi Tape! We can never get too much around here! And the watercolor paper is something I’ve been wanting to try!

  42. [email protected] says

    Yay thanks! We love to paint!

  43. Mary Beth Galloway says

    Colored tapes have been the fave this month. Glues are a close runner up!
    Anything sticky, I guess. My boys love it.

  44. says

    We started with an art hutch from Ikea and that got filled..than we got a rolling art caddy..and than another…it’s obvious we have the BEST kind of problem — an art project addiction! Would love to win.

  45. Liann Slotsve says

    We are always in need of art supplies as my daughter nonstop creates… and I love it!

  46. says

    I’m also wondering if this is open to residents anywhere….
    I will never say “no” to new art supplies! :)

  47. Sasha M says

    My daughter’s favorite art supply changes by the week! Glitter glue pens, watercolor paint, beeswax crayons, she loves it all.

  48. says

    Ah, sorry! I didn’t realize we had a specific question to answer…
    Their favourite art material are paint and glitter!

  51. Kenzie A. says

    Paint. My child loves to use different tools to paint (brushes, combs, rollers, fingers…).

  52. Whitney says

    I guess I should have said, we love to paint right now but can work pretty much anything into our art supplies.

  53. Kristal says

    My kids love paint! And we had to get rid of all of it for our recent move, so I’m in need of replacing it all! So what a timely and awesome giveaway:)

  54. says

    My son’s FAVORITE art material is paint. He loves crayons and markers, but, when he sees his easel set up with globs of bright colored paints waiting for him… his face lights up! A child after my own heart! Thanks for the chance to win Jean!

  55. Jocelyn says

    My daughter loves to make art projects. She’s been know to create projects out of plastic spoons, rubber bands and corks!

  56. Kat says

    I just found your site and am really enjoying your ideas. My six year old son loves paint and markers equally.

  57. Sarah says

    Right now it is crayons and markers. He loves to draw bubbles (circular scribbles) and balloons (straight lines).

  58. Liz says

    My daughter’s favorites vary quite a bit. Right now she’s pretty old school — paper and glue, markers, stickers :)

  59. Alana says

    I was just in hobby lobby last night looking for liquid watercolors. I wasn’t able to find them. Perfect timing!

  60. Colleen says

    I am interested as our daughter is nearly two and starting to explore crafts and activities.

  61. Nikki says

  65. Alison says

    My little one love the bottle of white glue, not that she can actually squeeze any out, I think she just likes the idea of it!

  66. Jen says

    This is like a dream come true. Ive had all of these items in my shopping cart or on my wish list until I could actually buy them. Thanks for the opportunity!!!

  67. Cassandra R. says

    My son is all about painting lately and I think he would Love to try the liquid water colors.

  68. says

    My oldest prefers pencil (she’s 12), the 9yo likes pen, the 8yo loves colored pencil and paint, the 6, 4, 3, and 2 year old like chalk pastels.

  69. kate says

    My 2 girls have so many favorite art supplies- At the moment my 3 yr old is BIG into painting – painting on paper, painting seashells, anything! then adding sequins! My 8 yr old is into cutting pictures out of magazines/newspapers right now and making her own comic strips etc… yesterday she spent the morning cutting people out of felt and then making clothes for them.

  70. Kerri says

    Wait, I did things in the wrong order and didn’t answer the question. My daughter’s favorite art material right now is glitter paint (or really, anything glitter!)

  71. [email protected] says

    We love paint!!!

  72. Jen says

    I should have said, most of these items were on my wish list. But all of them are very neat and exciting!

  73. Amy says

    I’m a relative newcomer here (within the last 3-4 months) and loved hearing about the history and motivations for this blog. I’ve felt the same way about those magazines. All too *perfect* and never open-ended. We are all so blessed by everything you share here! Congratulations on 6 years!!! I don’t know that we have a favorite basic supply… anything messy is pretty much the best! So maybe baby wipes (which I still buy long after)… since they hold the promise of being able to clean up anything! :-)

  74. Kathy says

    color pencils! I think they like that they can be more detailed with them over crayons or markers.

  75. Jo says

    My 12 year old loves markers. Now she is into the brush markers which are hugely popular. My 5 year old loves crayons on sketch paper.

  76. Carolyn Joslin says

    Out favorite supplies are plain old crayons. We can use them in so many ways, on so many textures, and we have a HUGE supply thanks to a teacher in the family!

  77. Peggy C says

    Oh, I did bit answer the question! PAINT! We’ve actually been dying to try the liquid water colors you recommend!

  78. Dojna Shearer says

    My three-year-old daughter LOVES to paint. But she tends to use up all the blue (her favorite color) in a set quickly, and then doesn’t want to paint with that set because it doesn’t have any blue. :)

  79. Nancy says

    Favorite art material? Probably Prismacolor pencils. But we also LOVE the liquid watercolors for DSS. Thanks for the giveaway!

  80. sybrina says

    My daughter is still just 2 months old….but my students absolutely LOVE glitter glue/glitter paint!

  81. Carla says

    Hi, my kids love to use tape, scissors and liquid watercolors!
    I am not in the US, I hope I am eligible.

  82. Elizabeth says

    I love Discount School Supply and have a well-stocked craft closet thanks to them, but I would LOVE to win this! :)

  83. Elizabeth says

    Ooops, forgot to say what our favorite is— I will say that our liquid and tempura watercolors are both well used, and we love the “Make it shimmer” additive too!

  84. Alisa says

    My daughter LOVES her art supplies…all of them. But lately, she’s been asking to use her paints everyday. I’ve noticed that she tends to use vibrant, bold colors in the winter and then leans toward a softer medium, like watercolor or colored pencil, in the summer.

  85. Michelle says

    My kids love paint and markers, I think mostly because they don’t always have access to them.

  86. Christina G says

    I don’t think at 3yo, he has a favorite material.. we do a lot of different arts and crafts to open those doors to a favorite.. :)

  87. Elizabeth Vowell says

    Congrats! Thank you for your years of commitment to making childhood fun, crafty and messy. Much love!

  88. Janelle says

    After reading some of your art supply reviews, I got the tempera paint sticks and crayon rocks for my son’s 5th birthday. They are both his favorites lately!! I love watching kids be excited about creativity! Thanks so much for your blog- you inspire this mommy.. :)

  89. deanna says

    For the last year my 4 year old is obsessed with ny kind of tape: washi tape, colorful painters tape, double sided tape, you name it. He uses it to make pictures, craft, and fix just about anything he thinks is broken. I didn’t know that Discount School Supply sold such neat looking tpe. He’d love all of this!

  90. Maureen Waitt says

    Hoping to win the Discount School Supply prize. I need to get busy making art with my 2 year old. Biocolor and Liquid watercolor are the best products out there!

  91. [email protected] says

    we can always have use for liquid watercolor, watercolor paper and all the cool crafty stuffs :-)

  92. says

    You would not believe it, but his favorite art material at the moment is plain paper and a pencil. The second favorite is recycled materials. It’s really my fault, I haven’t provided enough materials for him … but it’s on my list of things to do as I’m working on an art studio for him based on your blog! He will be so thrilled with a well-stocked art studio, and this giveaway will really help. Thanks! :)

  93. Melissa says

    The most used supply would have to be paper!! Cut it, glue it, paint it, glitter it, fold it, color it, layer it…….
    But their FAVORITE is probably glitter glue!

  94. Savannah B says

    Would definitely love this for two children. We are art fanatics! Going broke on art supplies over here ;) So some free supplies would be awesome. Love your site and FB posts. Thanks!

  95. Miriam Giardini says

    My daughter is 3 years old and her favorites are the scissors and paint, any kind of paint! If we allowed her, she would paint the walls, the windows, the TV screen… ;)

  96. Jill W says

    I have twins. I’d have to say Gabe loves pens the best because he likes to write his numbers and is starting to spell words. Sam loves colored pens, crayons & paper because he loves drawing trains.

  97. Amy says

    My little boys LOVE play dough and paint! I just ordered some things from discount school supply and I’m so happy with them. The service was excellent, too.

  98. Nicole Graepler says

    I hope to win this for my 2 toddlers they are 3 and 2 and we are on a limited budget so we can’t afford to get art things. They love making things and coloring. I would be so blessed and it would make my babies so happy if we got this. Thank you.

  99. Dee says

    Just played with BioColor at the Marbles kids Museum in Raliegh yesterday- would LOVE this giveaway!!!

  100. Nancy Palmer says

    My 4 year old loves watercolors! We’d really like to try the liquid ones from Discount Art Supplies! Thanks!

  101. Geri says

    My grandchildren love to do art, and would love all the supplies! Haven’t tried the liquid watercolors yet–would like to try them!

  102. Sarah says

    My kids love tape right now. It doesn’t matter what kind it is – plain, Scotch, colored – the more the better!

  103. Emily says

    With 5 kids at home, we fly through the art supplies in a second. The messier the better it seems :)

  104. says

    I got the girl a big stack of the nice construction paper and washable tempera paint from Discount School Supply for Christmas and she is loving it. Also, stickers.

  105. Sarah says

    Technical difficulties …anyway, my kids favorite supply is really water! In the form of snow water, bubbly, ice. We like to color it, pour it, float things in it, etc! We love the liquid water colors to add to it.

  106. says

    Scissors and glitter glue takes the prize! Half the kids in my art program LOVE to cut things and paste them and I see collage artists of the future in them! But a good portion of them love when I let them “draw” with glitter glue.

  107. stephanie.yanik_live says

    It really depends on the day. There are days he only wants to use pencils, other days that he wants nothing but paint, then there are days he just wants to create what he can from Popsicle sticks and glue.. I guess it’s just whatever moves him that day.

  108. Melissa Ferguson says

    Any type of play-doh or clay is popular at our house, along with cutting and pasting and anything sparkly!

  109. katie says

    my one year old son hasn’t been introduced to much yet so id say paint for him…my 6 year old daughter says “a paintbrush because I like to paint…no actually droppers because you get to make new colors that you never made before”… my 4 year old daughter says “I really love everything…scissors help me cut so scissors are the best. its like chopping.”

  110. Maria says

    Right now my 3 year old is into crayons and whatever piece of paper they can find, whether its my cookbooks or his sisters homework, it all gets a little extra decoration.

  111. grace says

    we love to paint and also color using color pencil … lately we don’t use crayons anymore, not sure why :-) thanks for the chance, what a great giveaways!

  112. Karen says

    My daughter (age 8) is really into colored pencils and her sketch pad. My son (age 3) loves homemade playdough right now

  113. Patricia Hay says

    This would be great for me as an artist first time mom who just had a baby about 5 months ago to teach and past on my talents! :)

  114. Angie says

    Watercolors, markers, liquid glittery paint…
    I love your blog, congratulations on the 6 year anniv!

  115. Nicki says

    Paint, paint and more paint!! My boys(3 1/2 and 2) love it!! Truck painting is a favorite in our house :)

  116. [email protected] says

    My daughters’ favorite art medium is paint – of any kind but esp our new find – watercolor paint!!

  117. Emily says

    With a 16-month-old, we are just getting started with art supplies. Chalk, pens, and crayons are a hit.
    Can’t wait to explore more!

  118. Lisa says

    This is Beautiful! We love paints, crafting and creating. It may not be marketable but it is always our own!
    Kaitlyn turns 4 next month and she loves making crafts for her dollhouse and pet shop toys… it may not always be usable or identifiable but she is proud!

  119. Heidi says

    Favorite art material around here is paper. All sizes, colors. Quick sketches on tiny pieces are everywhere.

  120. Sara says

    Favorite art material these days is a set of eight basic markers. We also love to paint and use stamps.
    thanks for the awesome give away.

  121. Laura says

    Markers would have to be my children’s go to art supply as well, although they still love trying new ones!

  122. Kaidi says

    Markers and popsicle sticks have been a favorite recently. Many wands, creatures, stars, etc. are currently scattered across our table. Another favorite in our house is watercolor crayons. They love the vibrant colors and often use them without water.

  123. kristin sherwood says

    we are totally in love with creamy crayons and bits of paper, ribbon and fabric for collage-ing…we’d LOVE to win this to add to our art closet!! :)

  124. [email protected] says

    Love the tape!

  125. Michelle says

    My kids love good old fashioned pencils and crayons…they are always drawing and making story books!

  126. [email protected] says

    Nature and paint! The kids love using the things we find on our walks and making them into beautiful works of art.

  127. karen m says

    Love DSS! We go through glue quickly, also paint, markers, colored pencils, you name it, we go through it!

  128. Angel M. says

    Difficult question :) My kids really love it all. We really enjoy mixed media art projects. One thing I do really enjoy is the flexibility of watercolor pastels – and really nice watercolor paper.

  129. says

    paint (or anything that can be poured or squeezed out). she doesn’t even use it the right way… it’s seriously a sensory thing for her… paint all over her hands. lol

  130. Christina B. says

    Watercolors with the fancy watercolor paper. And glitter glue of course! My daughters love art projects.

  131. Jessica says

    My daughter loves painting and everything that comes with it. She loves painting on canvas with a fan brush.

  132. Paige Cunningham says

    The students I teach love everything but they especially like mixing different media; paint and pastels or paint and fabric…. How fun to have a chance to win some great art products!

  133. Jennifer says

    Markers. Especially Sharpie markers. Markers that don’t necessarily wash off. Markers used in places not made for markers. ;) Seriously, drawing, drawing, and more drawing.

  134. [email protected] says

    Our favorite around here is paint!

  135. Alya says

    A regular pen, construction paper, scissors and yarn are my daughter’s favorites! Thank you for the giveaway, I would love to try liquid watercolors at our house!

  136. [email protected] says

    Art makes the world go round!
    My grandchildren love ART!
    So does this Grandma!

  137. Maureen says

    I’d say liquid watercolors – probably cause it means we bring out the canvas and I paint with them (so it is more serious of an event) more than the material itself.

  138. Christina H says

    Shaving cream! For artwork on paper or in the tub, colored or white, applied with hands, brushes and anything they can find!

  139. Lisa says

    She loves Paints, crayons, crafting w/ felts, straw, bottle cleaners, pompoms.. any medium works :)

  140. Molly says

    My son loves to paint! He loves stamping the paints with old wine corks and rolling paint with pint sized roller. We also make a lot of handprint art!

  141. Katherine says

    She said “all of them, or do you need to know a ‘pacific’ one? My ‘pacific’ one would probably be stamps.”

  142. Andrea D. says

    I love finger paints with kids. It lets them get messy in a controlled way. Thanks for the chance to enter.

  143. Lisa says

    My 6 year old daughter loves a notebook and a pen. So simple, but the landscapes, figures and animals she dreams up are incredible and inspiring. Love your blog!!! Thanks for the opportunities for creativity!

  144. Kari says

    My kids’ favorites at the moment are any kind of paints and coffee filters. Lots of coffee filter snowflakes around here!

  145. [email protected] says

    Paint, paint, paint! Two four year olds go through quite a lot!

  146. Jenny says

    I LOVE your blog and am so enspired by your love for children and art. We have turned a big part of our school room space into art space after visiting your blog! The kids would thank you! They love to paint on our new easel and cut and glue and create from old things to make their very own new things.

  147. says

    Love any kind of dough here. But for more art related type material love simple clear contact paper and anything that will stick too it.

  148. Chris says

    Oddly enough – just the traditional ol’ waterpaint box. One of the kiddos has completely finished off a box – which I thought wasn’t possible! And our children’s librarian had a neat idea for very young ones who don’t get the concept of using a wet, but not too wet, brush … use a squirt water onto the paint box until it’s wet enough to paint … then you have no need to dunk your brush in water before the paintbox!

  149. Elizabeth says

    My boys’ favorite art material is glitter glue! They want to involve it in every craft we do.

  150. [email protected] says

    My son loves any kind of paint! Especially watercolors!

  151. [email protected] says

    The big box of crayons and glitter glue and plain glitter! She would love this set! Drawing is her favorite thing to do.

  152. lois says

    My kids love it all! I guess if they had to choose 1 fave at this moment in time, 1 would say glitter paint the other smelly markers.

  153. Tommie Sue Schindler says

    Paint! They love it in any form — fingerpaint, washable tempera, watercolors, etc.

  154. Karen says

    He loves all the little embellishments like buttons, sequins, etc. that can be glued on paper or felt.

  155. Melody says

    Probably construction paper. We paint on it, we brush and stamp water onto it, we cut it up, we fold it. There’s so much to do with it.

  156. Amber Boggs says

    She loves all art materials. I don’t think she has a favorite. Crayons, markers, beans, paint. She doesn’t care for glue, apparently, but she loves drawing.

  157. Michelle Gills says

    Paint and chalk. My twins can’t get enough of creating with both of those types of art.

  158. Celena says

    My daughter would paint all day if she could. Her new love is tracing paper. She loves to put the tracing paper on her books and draw her favorite characters. Just found you on Pinterest. I’m amazed over your site!

  159. says

    My son loves to cover his hands with whatever paint or ink we are using and make hand prints! His favorite paint so far is tempera.

  160. Amelia Lawler says

    My kids love to paint. Anything they can find around the place they bring to me and ask if they can see how it paints. Water paints, acrylic paints, poster paints they don’t care!! Marbles, hands, fingers, they will try anything!!!

  161. [email protected] says

    Paper and anything–markers, crayons, paint–to mark it up.

  162. Tara says

    Wow this is amazing! I have shopped on this site before and love it! Congrats on the benchmark and thanks for the opportunity!

  163. Becky Williams says

    PAINT beats all. The mess of it. The sophistication of holding a brush…my daughter got an acrylics set with an easel and said she felt like she was a real artist in France (where she got that I dont entirely know-cartoons?)… I just figure you gotta love paint!

  164. Jessica says

    He loves markers and crayons the most at this point, but I imagine once we add paint to the mix that will be a new love.

  165. [email protected] says

    I was going today paint, but it’s really either tape (any kind) or white glue. Apparently, I love adhesives!!!

  166. Sara says

    My daughter got air dry clay for Christmas with clay tools and has been making all sorts of cups and containers. Lots of fun

  167. Jill M says

    Tape! Scotch Tape is their favourite,right now! So funny…I bought my daughter a big pack of tape from BJ’s for the holidays!

  168. Ashley says

    My boys love markers, stickers, and plain white paper to make books. Our house is full of them!!!

  169. cindy says

    The sharpies that she’s not supposed to use! But otherwise markers, crayons, and colored pencils.

  170. Christine Smith says

    My 3 yo loves glitter shakers! And my 7 yo complains constantly about having glitter all over him!

  171. Jacqueline says

    My three year old daughter loves markers, especially Sharpies. I think she enjoys the strongly-coloured lines (more bold than the water-based markers).

  172. Angel says

    My youngest niece, with whom i am most often crafty, loves watercolor paints! I have some of her art framed and hanging in my home. =)

  173. Melanie says

    This is a tough one! My 5 1/2 year loves tape – not she seems to prefer scotch tape over glue even! My 3 year old loves foam stickers!

  174. Jennifer PM says

    Varies day to day – stickers, stamps, tempura paint. But probably crayons get the most use. THANK YOU for all your wonderful work and inspiration.

  175. candice s says

    Lately, she likes drawing on paper with dry erase crayons. They color differently than regular crayons.

  176. says

    right now, I would say liquid water colors

  177. Milena says

    I love the Biocolors, which I discovered thanks to you! As most of our art supplies..
    Thanks Jean!

  178. Stephanie says

    Honestly, just plain drawing paper and ballpoint pens! My son loves making detailed drawings.

  179. Heather says

    Definitely paints and color pencils. She is creating with color pencils every single day and wants that easel out for painting all the time. We go through a LOT. of paint!

  180. Elizabeth says

    My 5 year olds favorite art material is oddly enough: tape. She can’t get enough of it. She’ll use it to make books, vases, sculptures… anything she can think of!

  181. Lauren T says

    Currently my daughter loves finger painting! I can give her a brush or any other tool to start and it will inevitably evolve from brush to fingers to full on body painting!!!! I love seeing her get into it and explore- even if I don’t always love the mess!

  182. Amy says

    Oh, hard to say. He loves his markers for everyday use, but has a lot of fun with paint when we get it out.

  183. krista says

    doesn’t matter how many supplies we put out, the ‘pipsqueaks’ win over and over. congrats on the anniversary, and thanks for all of the guidance your blog and book provide!

  184. Leanne says

    Favourite art materials here are colouring utensils of any sort – markers, pencil crayons, pastels, etc.

  185. Eliza says

    My younger son is more open to art than my older one, and his absolute favorite activity is spin art using an IKEA salad spinner and tempera, glitter, and metallic paints. We have used his creations for birthday invites and thank you cards!

  186. Jessica G says

    My daughter LOVES painting with anything- watercolors, fingerpaints, water on construction paper… you name it.

  187. Stephanie says

    Tape and Scissors. My two love nothing more than cutting up paper and taping it back together again to make sculptures, crowns, paper doll clothing, etc.

  188. Sabrina says

    Drawing supplies for my oldest (pencil crayons, charcoal etc) and paint and sculpting for the younger one

  189. Julie Ventura says

    Glitter glue is the favorite. He just used his allowance to buy a new set from the craft store.

  190. Chelsea says

    Crayons are currently the favorite. My 2 1/2 yr old keeps crayons in her purse or backpack depending on what she carries that day :)

  191. Lydia Thomas says

    Our favorite art supply is paints! I make a lot of it at home with cornstarch and food coloring, but whatever is on hand is good too!

  192. says

    My daughter’s favorite art material is…everything! She loves art! She loves drawing, coloring, painting, making things with scissors & glue, etc. I don’t think she could pick just one way to create :)

  193. Michaela says

    My girls love to paint with acrylics on small canvases. There’s something about the canvas that elevates it to a much more special and “real” art project. Thanks and congratulations on 6 years!

  194. [email protected] says

    He loves the foam paints, he creates art with all the colors!

  195. Claire Yabraian says

    Watercolors and colored pencils. Although my daughter really enjoyed a tinfoil, glue, and tissue paper project.

  196. Rebecca says

    My kids LOVE to paint! Scissors are also a bit hit as they like to cut everything. Love DSS!

  197. Tanya W says

    Watercolours and really *any* paint are the faves around here. My 8yo and 5yo love messy crafts!

  198. Lisa says

    Paint, Crayons, Crafting supplies of any sort she can cut, stick and glue into little pretend things.

  199. Jennifer says

    Favorite–probably paint. Most used–colored pencils/markers (mommy doesn’t always want to get out the paint!).

  200. R. Asvitt says

    My kids would love new art supplies! I am the parent helper for art lessons in my son’s class and I always end up snagging things from our home stash to use in my school lesson.

  201. [email protected] says

    My child is too young to have a favorite- 1 month. Hopefully she will love sewing, like her mother, and painting like her father.

  202. Nanette says

    Oh, man. I don’t know. Actually, I’ll just ask them. My son said scissors and my daughter loves crayons.

  203. DebbieK says

    Paper is always a priority. I try to keep markers to a minimum because I find them everywhere!

  204. SarahB says

    glue. we recently discovered glitter and colored glue. sometimes without actually sticking anything, just admiring the spread.

  205. lynn says

    ooh, it changes frequently with my 6 year old, but colored pencils are at the top right now. thanks.
