hmm I think it depends what kind of materials are you looking for? Paper/Sissors with pattern/Crayons and paint?

My default place for those materials is Popular book store but I have saw some of the art and craft materials at concourse and in Daiso before too. Art friend (in bras basar and Ngee Ann City) and some of the art stores have a huge variety but can be quite expensive depending on what you buy.

in my memory, Art Friends is not cheap...if getting just some basic art and craft items to doodle at home, just popular would be sufficient.

if for school use, they would reccommend Popular too, unless they looking for something more 'pro'... :D

Try shopping at Bras Basah. Thats the place where most ART material can be found. Art Friend will be a better choice as they have many different selections! Maybe you can become a member? Can't remember how I become one but I think you can get up to 10% if I ddn't remember wrongly.

Well, children love cutting papers. And papers are so expensive!!! so perhaps to be more creative, we can always use recycle items like

Newspaper
Papercup
Even envelops from your daily bills and make use of those phamlets/brochures included to create a collage with your child.

At the end of the day, still a nice piece of art work :)

That is true. And hands-up all those parents with children in Primary school that are NOT already Popular Bookstore members? It's hard to imagine there's any :). It's weird how Popular was my favorite haunt as a kid (other than MPH), and now it's my favorite haunt for shopping for my kid.

Hi Gmum,

Are you looking for "sand art" - the type u do the coloring with colourful sand, then u put the art piece in the toaster to bake. I don't noe where u live, but if west side, there's one at IMM level 3 outside daiso.
