MakerSpace Supplies List

In order for our Makerspace at Tommy Smith Elementary to get off the ground, be maintained, and be successful, we need some help from parent/relatives/community members so we are asking for donations of any kind. These could be items that you no longer use or items you purchase (new or used).

The list below is the "more common" items and are merely suggestions. They are definitely things that we would like but please do not limit yourself to only items on this list.

(All items need to be safe, clean, and appropriate for elementary-aged students.  Items like hand-tools, sewing needles, etc. will be only be used with adult supervision)


·         Sewing supplies (Needles, thread, scissors, fabric)    

·         Ribbon, yarn, string                        

·         Legos, Knex, Blocks

·         Post-it notes

·         Markers, Pens, Crayons, etc.            

·         Play-Doh

·         Circuitry Kits (can be purchased online)            

·         Craft supplies (cotton balls, popsicle sticks, paint, tape, low temp hot glue gun, glue gun sticks, regular glue/sticks, toothpicks)                

·         Cameras, photography equipment                   

·         Things we can take apart (Old or broken electronics, small devices) 

·         Nails, Screws, Bolts               

·         Storage Containers - tubs, baskets

·         Dominos, marbles  

·         Playing cards (used for building items)

·         Batteries (various sizes)

Again, please don't think you need to limit yourselves to just these items or that these need to all be purchased new.  If you have similar items that you would like to donate, please feel free.  

Thank you in advance for all of your help and support.
