By far, however, the biggest craft fail I had was when I didn’t have enough crafts. That’s happened two different times in two different jobs, and both times, it’s been because I’ve had groups come in that weren’t scheduled. With both jobs, we have to plan out everything way in advance- either three to six months out, including craft supplies. When groups show up unannounced with their 20-40 kids apiece, supplies can run low.
