Welcome to Day 2 of Coloring Christmas, where I share my top 12 picks for gifts for coloring enthusiasts this holiday season! Today I want to share with you my travel coloring kit. It came in handy this week for me as I moved from my condo to a new house and all of my regular coloring supplies were buried in boxes.
When I color, I put my pages on a clipboard. One of my favorite coloring tools are Sharpie markers, which will absolutely bleed through the page I’m coloring and sometimes even an extra page underneath. Placing my coloring pages on a clipboard keeps the bleed through contained.
(In the picture above, you can see one of the ColorMonthly Premier designs colored on Velum paper, using regular Sharpies and Metallic Sharpies.)
I stumbled upon this great clipboard box while looking for new coloring supplies on Amazon a few weeks ago, and I absolutely LOVE it! It’s good quality, and can carry a large amount of pages AND supplies. I do wish there were options this size in colors other than black (they have a smaller/thinner one in blue)…I’ll probably decorate it with my Metallic Sharpies one of these days.
When you open the box, the first half has room to store coloring sheets. There’s a pocket folder for them on the right, or you can just stack them up on the left. Plenty of space for traveling (or just sitting on the couch watching TV while coloring, trying to keep everything contained).
And behind the pocket folder is a great divided tray for coloring supplies. Markers and pencils of all sizes will fit in 3 of the divided sections. The itty bitty spot is great for a pencil sharpener. The one spot that I have scissors in, none of my regular sized markers fit into, but it’s still a great compartment for other coloring supplies you might need. Or really short/used up pencils.
Or, get all the supplies shown in this picture for a truly memorable gift:
