Creative projects are always more fun when you have a wide variety of craft supplies to work with. Creative Children is an educational supply store in Port Moody that has everything you might want for young children’s arts and crafts projects, from stickers and foam letters to clay, posterboard and tempera paints. It’s worth the drive to the suburbs for a visit.
Fuel Your Child’s Creativity
If you want to encourage your kids to be creative at home, it’s important to have a collection of good quality craft supplies on hand. That means markers, crayons, paints, paper, pencils, erasers and scissors. Lots and lots of scissors! Creative Children supplies many daycares, preschools and elementary school classrooms with arts and crafts materials, and it’s open to the public so you can stock up and fuel your child’s creativity at home too.
Creativity Comes in Many Forms
I discovered Creative Children when I was looking for a place to pick up a wide variety of craft supplies at once without having to drive to many different shops. A friend pointed me at Creative Children and I spent several hours poring over their online catalogue before stopping in. They carry a full range of art, craft, school and office supplie,s as well as other creative supplies like toys for open-ended play, music, puppets and more. If you see something specific in the catalogue it’s worth it to call ahead before dropping in, just to make sure they have it in stock.
Creative Children also offers pre-packaged kits called Creative Packs. These are great options if you’re starting from scratch, you’re not really sure what kind of projects or supplies you child would like to try or you’re buying a list full of school supplies in September. You can call Creative Children at 604-469-6403 to find out more about their Creative Packs.
Children learn and make art at home and at school or daycare, so why not stock up at home with the same supplies your child has access to elsewhere? Creative Children is the perfect one-stop-shop for most preschool and elementary aged craft projects, and it’s conveniently located for families in Burnaby, New Westminster or the Tri-Cities area. It’s also located directly across the street from Rocky Point Park, which is a great place to visit if you want to make a day of it.

Michelle Carchrae is often asking those important life questions: "who moved the scissors?", "how would you do that differently next time?" and "are you finished with the glitter glue?" Homeschooling two girls, ages 6 and 3, is her full time job. The rest of the time Michelle can be found blogging at The Parent Vortex, hiking in the forest or knitting and reading simultaneously. She recently published her first ebook, The Parenting Primer: A guide to positive parenting in the first six years, and moved to Bowen Island.
