With a 3 and a 4 year old it is smart to always be prepared during outings that may be boring or long car trips to have some type of activity for them to complete. It saves your sanity when they are busy (and creative) and it keeps everyone happy. With the help of supplies from Oriental Trading, I decided to make “On the Go Art Kits”.
I included lots of items in the kits so different fun and creative ideas can be made from them. Since we have moved and are permanently living on our boat, I also made the kits ocean themed. My hope is that any time we are with other children, we can use the kits for all the kids to be entertained. All the items are kept conveniently in a pencil pouch so they do not take up alot of room.
Stickers-Lots of stickers! I included all different types of sea life stickers with different textures.
Stamps-The kids have really enjoyed the stamps, but you have to watch out because they can sometimes get a little “stamp happy”. I found my three year old with stamps all over her arm!
Paper-I loved this paper because it has all different sizes and colors. It also included premade folded cards, which we plan to use for a different project.
Scissors-I included beginner scissors, so I did not have to worry as much about the kids cutting themselves or other items.
Glue-This has allowed them to get super creative with glue different pieces of paper together. My favorite picture that they have made has been a collage which took lots of glue!
Of course there are many more items that could be added, such as crayons, markers, pencils……the list could go on and on. The results of the the artwork completed has been pretty interesting and entertaining. I made about 12 kits, so I always have one ready to go!
