One of our favorite supplies to use in kids crafts and activities is contact paper. You can do so many fun activities with contact paper, such as Contact Paper Crafts with Q-tips, and the best part is you can buy it at the dollar store. I always have some on hand and when there's a rainy day or a sick day, I bring it out and add some other items I already have. If you don't have any, go grab some and if you already have it, here are 2o Ways to Use Contact Paper with Kids.

Oh my gosh, thanks for letting me know. I wonder what happened to that blog and if she knows it has been hacked by such a gross site. I removed the link right away.
The third link down connects to an inappropriate site.
