    Kid's Arts and Craft Supplies

    Hi All

    Bit of a long shot but I was wondering if anybody could help me, I have recently started running a children's playgroup and I am trying to source cheap paint, craft things and painting aprons, If anybody has any ideas I would be really grateful!!

    Thanks

    i know the quality isn't brill-but the pondland shops and Wilkinsons often do cheap crafty stuff.

    Do you have anyone who works in an office or similar - my MIL works in an office and the the scrap paper and test sheets on the computer get sent our way for painting & drawing on the back off - obviously not confidental stuff - but worth a try.

    Even an add in the local shop or paper might help

    Ours is called a pyramid club near us, they hire out equipment to groups for short term and sell craft items very reasonably. Maybe look on the local council education site, might find some information there.

    if you have the works store by you try them they do large paints in bottles for £1 glitter glue and foam stickers etc i get all my crafty stuff from there for my boy also as someone as mentioned poundland
