Chadis Crafts' Fun Pages


This page was designed to help parents, scout leaders and teachers find information about crafts and were to order often hard to find supplies. As a former teacher trainer and member of many education committees, I just can't resist listing sites I find on the net that look helpful to teachers.

I have divided these pages (again!) into multiple pages: Parent/Teacher Resource Page for supplies and resources that are of general interest and Jewish Parent/Teacher Resource Page. I suggest that Jewish teachers look carefully through both pages as many of the basic skills and lessons listed are invaluable and can be applied to any setting. Now I have divided the Jewish resource pages into resources and a new Jewish supply sources.
