Chadis Crafts's Fun Pages:
Jewish Craft Supplies

This page was designed to help parents, scout leaders and teachers
find information about crafts and where 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 this page (again and again!) into three pages.
This page for supply sources plus Parent/Teacher Resource Page
for 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.
