Preschoolers love art supplies! We go through paper, markers, stickers and crayons so fast. So when Graylie was invited to her friend’s birthday party last weekend, I was excited to make her a special gift.
I decided it would be fun to make this Dollar Tree Arts and Crafts Gift Basket. Her friend is always drawing and painting pictures for her at school. That is how I knew she was already a little artist.

Creating a Dollar Tree Arts and Crafts Gift Basket
I was able to find so many cute arts and crafts supplies at Dollar Tree! I started with a plastic bin and personalized it using my Cricut Machine. It was really simple to do and I used a free font I found on Cricut Design Space.
Here are the Arts and Crafts Supplies I found to fill the bin:
- A Variety of Paints
- Paint Brushes
- Construction Paper
- Sketch Pad (We go through LOTS of paper!)
- Glue Stick
- Small Canvas
- Foam Stickers
- School Scissors
- Art Poster
- Small Caddy to hold crayons & markers
Add a craft store gift card.
I only spent about $15 on the basket of arts and crafts supplies so I decided to add a gift card. I purchased a $10 gift card at Michael’s and put it in a DIY Gift Card Holder. The gift card holders are super easy to make! You don’t need any tools or cutting machines to make them.
Always use gift wrap supplies from Dollar Tree to stay budget friendly.
I also used gift wrap supplies from Dollar Tree! I love their selection and of course the price is right! I purchased basket filler, cute gift tissue, and shrink wrap. The shrink wrap even came with a pull bow. It was all really easy to put together.
We had a great time putting this gift basket together! I highly recommend a gift like this for the child in your life. These items also make great stocking stuffers.
This is a great gift idea! I would love to be given a basket full of art supplies!
An arts and craft gift basket is my kind of gift basket!
