At my last school, I wrote a letter and sent home the first week of school
asking for wish list supplies. Kids could drop this off in my scrap box (a
cardboard box wrapped with red craft paper that was set at the front doors
each morning- I had morning duty). I received more stuff than I had room to
store. It also opened the talk lines for parents to drop by my room when
getting rid of neat utensils, furniture, wallpaper books, etc.

Here's some of the things I asked for in my scrap box- all had to be clean
before being dropped off:
Coffee cans with tops
small yogurt containers with tops (and cool whip)
old tuperware with or without tops
old tee shirts for smocks or aprons
draw liners (I cover the cabinet-tops with them)
odd buttons or jewelry
clean milk or detergent jugs (got way too many)
Old blankets or towels
spoons (any kind- printmaking, stirring, etc.)
combs (for weaving- but, I stopped for hygeinne purposes)
Old broken crayon stumps
