I found some crafts on clearance at Target the other day. They were marked down from 4.99 to 1.48

Also, the red dot items in the dollar spot were 70% off. Found some paint your own pots for .30 as well as some glitter glue for .30 as well. I've gotten pipe cleaners and pom poms in the dollar spot before. The Target dollar spot has some great things for kids crafts.

I also like to repurpose items for crafts. All sorts of items can be used for kids to craft with like empty oatmeal canisters, cereal boxes are used for chipboard, and paper grocery bags for kraft paper. My mom used to have us fill glass bottles (they were Watkins double strength clear vanilla bottles mom decorated cakes a lot!) with water colored with food coloring and we'd put them in the window. When the sunlight hit them we had pretty colored lights on the walls.

Can't wait to see what everyone else posts!

Crafts / Dollar store plate- sharpie markers, bake 300 degrees 30 min. I have friends that did this with their kids every year- great idea!

Crafts / Melt beads in a 200 degree oven to make ornaments. great gift kids can make!
