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. |
First I had to divide the resource and supply pages into Jewith and Non Jewish.
Now the pages have got so long I have divide the Jewish pages into two Jewish
resources and Jewish Supply Sources.
I suggest that Jewish teachers look carefully through all of these pages as many of the
basic skills and lessons listed are invaluable and can be applied to any
SITES TO ORDER SUPPLIES FOR: JEWISH PRESCHOOLS, SCHOOLS, CAMPS AND FOR FUN AT HOME:
Offers candles and candlemaking supplies. I just realized I needed to list them
on the Jewish Pages. They have beeswax and parafin sheets.(great
for rolling Chanukah and Havdallah Candles.) I
recently visited their site again and found parafin sheets. They say they are
cheaper than beeswax and softer for children to use. They have some
great metal molds including 6 sided star
pillar and shabbat
candles. Plus oil for Channukah mennorahs or Shabbat but they seem
to carry many accessories. Watch for more candles projects as I bought
some of their paints.
Jewishcrafts.com - Just for the
Jewish Craft Supplies. Just redid their site. Now has a new on line
catalog. Lots of great Jewish crafts
including lots of wooden projects. Most are in the $1.00-$2.50 each in dozen
lots. (slightly higher for individual sets.) Since many projects look like they
would take longer than the 30 to 40 minutes in a typical class, (while you wait
for paint and glue to dry etc.) it looks like they would fit my 2 day budget.
I especially liked the many mennorah and seder
