Custom Travel Kits - Art on the Go

It's the time of year when school is coming to an end, and the kids are bringing home the stuff that needs to be stored, sorted, gifted, or just thrown away because the teachers are clearing out their classrooms.  So we get our kids backpacks that are washable, recyclable, or just disastrous and the only good thing to do is throw them away too.  I suggest a few things with those savable bags... and create a traveling art bag.

So what to put in the bag?  It all depends on the kids... their needs... their interests, and of course, the destination and the method you'll be travelling.  If you are going on a train, play or in a car or r.v., the methods of storage and transport may vary.  Watercolor pencils, oil pastels, even crayons will either melt or dry up depending on conditions.  The type of paper or drawing surface may vary as well.

These are just suggestions, and I can customize a travel bag for any child, or adult artist who would enjoy a bag on the go.  (note: if you are travelling to a warm climate - out in the desert where crayons may melt if left in a car, pack twistables or colored pencils...  I will NEVER forget the day my favorite Magenta Crayon melted into the seat seams of our family station wagon, nor will I forget my father's reaction because there was a magenta wax stain on the seat. (hot melted wax on hot vinyl)...  a memory of sad melted magenta :(

Custom Travel Kits - Art on the Go
