I would also buy basics at Walmart when I taught elem. I had a $600. budget
for 600 students. I would include a wish list in our school newsletter every
month. Parents begin to remember that you can use almost anything, and
wonderful things would be donated. One parent brought in lots of 16"x24"
sheets of scratch board. It really spurs on your creativity to plan lessons
around your donated treasures.
Besides an overview of what was happening in the art room, and the wish list,

activity ideas for their children. I would also thank them profusely for the
previously donated items.
