MATERIALS UPDATE: In the midst of quarantines and closures I am aware that it may be difficult for some families to obtain all supply items listed for the class. I have been contacted by several parents that they are missing an item or two. That鈥檚 okay. In fact it adds a great learning component to the class and fits in will during these times.

Although a list of recommended supplies is given, you can take the class without the exact supplies. Sticks from outside can be substituted for craft sticks, wrapping paper for newspaper, a cereal box for the index cards; are just a few examples. Encourage your child to be creative just as if they were stranded on the desert island with Sir Charles! Children are remarkably resourceful and have come up with some great substitutions over my last few days of classes.

If you are able to a pick through a craft bin or still have an open store nearby, the list of minimum supplies is:

鈥 Hair Dryer
鈥 Index cards
鈥 Construction paper
鈥 Newspaper
鈥 Craft sticks or Popsicle sticks
鈥 Ruler
鈥 Tape (masking, clear, duct, packing, etc...)
鈥 Straws
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Parental supervision recommended while using scissors and craft materials.
