Can you get your supplies via the school. Some suppliers give a discount to institutions, schools, charities...etc.
What age groups?

Hobycraft on line do craft projects for children I think they change every month the are really detailed inso much as theres clear instruction & picture showing you what to do. They did a great one at Easter

What about some of the things in Baker Ross, photo frames, boxes, shrink plastic etc.

oooo fantastic!! children can be really open minded and full of creativity. Love crafting with them.

seasonal themes are good, easter, summer, christmas etc.

I remember loving plaster of paris stuff when i was younger, you know the ones that come with moulds that you make and then paint.

ermmm card making, scrapbooking, making keyrings, jewelery.

ceramic decorating, glass painting.

drawing and painting.

model making.....

I think that sounds great ... gives them an opportunity to be genuinely creative. I get a bit fed up with "kit-style" craft activities, where there is no creativity required, it's just an exercise in assembly, and who can apply the PVA most neatly!

great idea!! am doing scrapbook with sunday school soon but will be about themself what they like friends, family etc.

kwym roisin, good for one offs or parties where time is limited, but something that will really get the creaTIVE JUICES FLOWING (oops caps!!) will be better and keep them coming back.

A4 is how I'll be doing it. cheaper, easy to store and you can get those plastic folder inserts and use a folder if you wanted. I plan to either do that, or use those hole punch tag thingies, with a cover page made by them.
think it may be easier for kidies.

you can also get ready made kiddie scrapbooks with sugar paer but I dont really like them.

btw, I'm starting to get into different size scrapping, those mini books look really nice.
