If you’re like me, the spring cleaning bug seems to have a bad bite this year. Consider donating your old arts & craft supplies to the Garden to be used in our future kids’ programming!

Arts & Craft supply wish list:

  • Paint (especially kid-friendly varieties such as water colors, tempera, and acrylics)
  • Paintbrushes (all sizes, even the big house paint sizes)
  • Yarn and embroidery floss (all colors)
  • Colored pencils
  • Marbles, polished rocks, shells, and other decorative “treasures” to add to our Gnome Depot
  • Rulers
  • Fake flowers
  • Tissue paper
  • Felt fabric
  • Nature-themed magazines (National Geographic, Ranger Rick, Outdoor Magazine, etc.)
  • Small glass jars (8 ounce or smaller) & lids
  • Ink pads and stamps
  • scissors


Still channeling your inner Marie Kondo?

Here’s a list of other materials we would love to have for our summer programs:

  • Magnifying glasses or jewelers’ loupes
  • Binoculars
  • Small zippered pouches
  • Backpacks (day pack size)

If you’re interested in making a donation, please email emma@kruckeberg.org
