Going on a trip for Spring break and in need of something to keep the kids occupied? How about a portable set of watercolors that you can make. I know, watercolors aren't something the kids can easily use on a plane. But this DIY set is different.
Nicole of One Golden Apple created this watercolor set using a metal tin, polymer clay, tubes of watercolors, coloring tools (she used Fantastix), and white metal paint. You can use these without cups of water standing by, perfect when the kids are in transit. For Nicole's detailed instructions on how to make a set for your own kids, check out her blog One Golden Apple.
