Yard sales are also a great way to get things. I also let parents know and some are great in recycling things from home.

If you're going to buy it, you might try Dollar Tree or Target for the small containers. I made a batch of the cake mix play dough and gave each student a small ball, maybe 2 inches or so. The...
