Y'aLL ReAdY fOr ThiS?? *cue up the 90's Jock Jams *

No seriously, are you ready for the *Ultimate Supply List * for your adapted art class? After 15 years of teaching self contained adapted art, I have compiled a list of my go to supplies that can be used in many different ways. Oh and there's more good news: most of these supplies can actually be found at your local dollar store! 

Quick sidebar: If you are teaching a self contained adapted art class this year and are looking for help with HOW to go about navigating this class, I encourage you to head to my previous blog here, and you can also check out this blog post with some of my all time favorite art lessons to do in adapted class. 

Ok, let's do this!! 

The Ultimate Adapted Art Supply List

* The first three sections of this list are made up mostly of items that can be found at your local dollar store. However, to make things easy, I went ahead and linked what I could to Amazon for convenience. I have also linked my favorite brands for the more traditional art supplies. 

Containers for Holding Supplies or Used for Printing *

Materials Great for Sensory Play *

Recycled Supplies*

  • Bubble wrap (all sizes- for all the printing!)
  • Cardboard (all the cardboard!)
  • Cardboard egg cartons
  • Styrofoam egg cartons
  • Plastic containers (for sensory bottles)
  • Cardboard tubes 

Materials to Add Texture *

Supplies From Art Distributors 


Whew! I know that seems like a HUGE list but honestly, I bet you already have many of these materials in your storage room. Stay tuned to learn more about how I use many of these materials for specific activities and lessons in my adapted art class.

 Embrace the mess and have fun!
