I love love love art supplies for the kids—it keeps them busy for a looooong time, and it feels educational and virtuous. And I am all about busy children and happy moms.
Right now at Toys ‘R’ Us, there’s a whole bunch of eligible Crayola products which are not only buy 1/get 1 free, they have free shipping!
Hmmmm…. Christmas, Easter, travel to Grandma’s house, days ending in “y”… I can see lots of great occasions for this stuff. (And don’t forget birthday parties, too!)
