After posting all 25 days of this series, I thought it might be helpful to list all of the supplies needed on one page. Please note, you might need to double check the activity, because some activities have several options to choose from, and you don’t want to get supplies for ALL of the options. Unless that’s what you really want to do.

Remember, these activities are optional and highly adjustable to your needs. If an activity on one day just overwhelms you even at the thought, do something that is less overwhelming.
