Back To School Art Supplies Under $20 For Pre-K Through Middle School
Back to school season is slowly approaching, and even though it may look a bit different this year, the need to stock up on supplies remains the same. Whether your kiddos will be virtual or get to walk the halls with friends and teachers again, these budget-friendly art supplies will get them excited for a new year of learning and expanding their creativity.
Art Supplies for Preschool Kids
Preschool is an exciting (and maybe even emotional) time as little ones are off to their first introduction into higher learning environments. There may be reading time where songs are sung, and books are ready to help them learn new words, rhymes, or arts and crafts activities like cutting, drawing, and painting to help nurture their fine motor skills. No matter the case, these supplies are perfect for supporting whatever new skill your kiddo will learn.
The proof is in the name; our finger crayons are designed to help tiny hands navigate as they bring their imaginations to paper. The set includes 30 fun colors that kids can choose from.
These unique dino-shaped crayons may attract a crowd of curious toddlers if your little pulls one out of their backpack. Our Dinosaur Crayons include green, blue, and yellow, adding a cool twist to coloring for any kiddo.
Attention spans in the toddler stage can be short, so keeping learning fresh and fun can be the perfect remedy to get kids excited when learning new things. Our My First Letters & Numbers kit has the essentials needed to keep littles entertained while learning the alphabet and counting.
Art Supplies for Kids Off To Kindergarten
Your kid's first official school year is where the basic concepts of reading, writing, math, among other skill sets, will elevate your little one's understanding of the world around them. Kindergarten is where those skills introduced in pre-k come to bloom, and these cool back to school supplies will help prepare them for every milestone they'll hit during the school year.
This set of markers includes 16 bold colors and a functional design that supports their tiny hands as they practice thin or thick lines while writing, drawing, or coloring.
This kit is packed with the essential back-to-school supplies that your kiddo needs to complete any DIY project they may be assigned during the school year. Inside you'll find paint, pencils, markers, brushes, and a paper pad to complete any variety of art activities.
Your kids back to school marker collection will begin and end with this set of 30 double-tipped markers with various colors the rainbow would envy. The felt tips support the flow of ink that produces smooth, even and washable lines.
Art Supplies for Middle Schoolers
Ah, middle school, another major transition for kids during the back to school season. The classes may be more challenging, the social setting more complex, and the need for a solid routine is a must. There also might be the desire to have cooler supplies to add a bit more confidence to their steps while walking into the first day of such a big school year, and these supplies will encourage that and maybe even finishing an assignment or two on time.
Any art project can be elevated with this set of artist-quality essentials that will be the ultimate addition to any middle schooler's supply collection. The sketch and charcoal pencils inside are great for practicing a variety of drawing techniques.
Kids can show off a bit more of their personality with this set of gel pens that features fun toppers like a donut, heart, sun, moon, flower, and rainbow to inspire a bright and cheerful school year.
Thirty-six artist-quality pencils within an array of beautiful colors and a storage box to keep art homework as mess-free as possible, our Colored Pencils will be a nice addition to an art stash.
We hope this list of supplies helps the back to school transition smoother no matter what stage your kiddo is in. Our collections of art and craft supplies are always curated with your littles development as a little human in mind, and we're proud to be a part of that journey!
