I supply most of the consumables from leftovers from my own sewing stash, but I also have stuff donated or left over from work programs. I promote the sewing kits after I do sewing workshops and they generally circulate briskly.

However, it was so popular I felt it was worth purchasing again and so I bought a second microscope to replace it. I bought the AMSCOPE-KIDS Beginner Microscope Kit on Amazon for about $40.
I updated the kit so the circulation staff doesn't have to check every single slide and tiny piece (there are over 60) - they just make sure the microscope is there and we trust our patrons for the rest. I cleaned out the kit and put better pictures on it.
