Traveling Art Pouch - Dining out with Kids

I'm pretty sure we've all been there right?  The restaurant's packed, your server seems to be the only one who showed up to work that night, the kids are hungry, bored, and ready to revolt.  If you're lucky, you've at least ended up at a place that uses huge sheets of block paper and dispenses out a few broken crayons that you can attempt to entertain the kids with, but let's be real, how long can you really keep Tic-Tack-Toe interesting.   Or maybe that's just my life...

Read more and get the tut after the jump...

We'll, I've been caught in that situation one too many times and decided something must be done.  So I searched the net for a (good) free tutorial and was so lucking to find one that I really like: the Traveling Art Show, by Bread and Buttons.

I liked it so much I made a few extras for friends and family.  I managed to find all of the fabric in the remnants bin at Joann's, what a deal!  The tut was easy to follow, even for a newbie sewer like me.   The boys love the pirate pattern on their pouch, and I love having quick artsy entertainment in my purse.

Have a great kids artsy tut?  I'd love to check it out, leave a comment! Print this post

What a great idea, my grand children would love these. I can individualized the contents to their real likes for crafts, thanks. Hope the restaurant doesn't mind glitter :)
