I know, some of you think that if you have to make your own supplies, it will consume more time than you can handle. After all you are already up to your nose with the workload and chores that you have, right?

Really, there are ways to get around this. How about involving your kids into the process of making the supplies? Make it another craft activity to bring more joy and experience to your preschool kids and they will love you dearly.
