Designating an accessible cupboard for art supplies can be a great way to keep your child’s materials organized but within reach. Having a designated art cupboard can allow you to harbor all of the supplies your child desires without taking up space in an already small home or area.
When it comes to creating a Reggio-inspired art cupboard, you want to choose authentic art materials that inspire your child’s skills and interests. Whether you have accumulated many materials overtime or are just starting down the Reggio path, below is a list of art supplies that are perfect for storing in your space.
- Oil paints
- Low-temperature glue gun
- Chalk pastels
- Double-sided tape
- Clay and sculpting tools
- Odds and ends
Be sure to include some towels for cleanup, as some of your supplies may be on the messy side. Not only will an art cabinet help keep your supplies neat and organized, but it will also help your child learn how to be organized as well when it comes time for cleanup.
