Drawing paper in various sizes 

Best to supply them with something to create their artwork on! Drawing paper comes in different weights – thin and flimsy to thick and sturdy. You can also buy it in assorted sizes, from small notepads to large rolls. 

Mixed media pads

Glue sticks and scissors 

For collage projects or anything that requires sticking, you’ll need some glue sticks – Pritt Stick is one of the best-known. Scissors are also essential for cutting out shapes and for any collage projects.
