When you’re on the road (especially for as long as I’ve been now!), keeping tots entertained is an art form. Rule #1: Always have drawing instruments on hand. This is the easiest, most foolproof way to keep them occupied – and get their creative juices flowing.
Sometimes when I’m desperate, I resort to stashing restaurant crayons in a Zip-Lock bag and snatching the note pad from the hotel room. And, yes, this has happened on more than a couple occasions! It would be so much easier if I had something like this traveling artist set by P’kolino. With all the tools you need contained in their own case (one that’s cute, to boot), it opens up to reveal markers, crayons, and a pad of paper right there and ready to go. The clever design makes it fun for tots and the convenience makes this a must-buy for parents. At Giggle for $35.
