Coloring on the Go

By Anisa Claire

Sometimes we want to color outside of our homes. It’s not always easy, though, to haul all of those books and supplies around with you, so here are a few ideas on how to easily ‘Color on the Go’…
.

TRAVEL SIZED BOOKS: Micro or travel-sized coloring books are a thing and they’re pretty awesome. Rather than your standard 8.5 x 11 book, mini books are small enough to slide into your purse or bag. Artists will often post about them on their pages or in groups, but a quick search on Amazon will do wonders, too.
.
GET A PENCIL CASE: When you’re rushing out the door for work, to the park, or on vacation, the last thing you want to do is pack a small army of supplies. It’s time-consuming and difficult to decide what to bring. Get a pencil case! Pack some of your favorite items into it and have it ready to snatch and run.
.
PURCHASE A COLORING TOTE: A tote is also known as a bag and is a great way to organize your coloring supplies in advance. You can get a basic bag from almost anywhere, but artists will often sell bags that are either colorable or that have some of your favorite designs already printed on them. They come in a variety of sizes and can often fit a few books, quite a few supplies, and still leave room for the non-important things like, you know, your keys or wallet.
.
TINY PENCILS AND MARKERS: If you’re really tight on space, there are travel-sized pencils and markers, too, that come in a cute little case you can toss into your pocket. They probably won’t last long, but they sure are convenient.
.
DOUBLE SIDED WEAPONS: Erm… Did I say weapons? I meant markers and pencils, of course! These are handy because they take up as much space as a regular pack of pencils or markers but offer double the selection. This is a nice option for coloring on the go.
.
Hope these tips helped! It’d be a shame to have to leave coloring supplies behind because of size or inconvenience, wouldn’t it? Hah!
