Keep the kids busy on a road trip with their own art bag full of inspiration and the essentials.

Layering 4 sheets of felt

1. To make the bag, overlap four felt sheets (standard size bought from the store – normal approx 8x10 in size) as seen here. The overlapped area will make the base of the bag sturdy.

2. Using Fiskars® Original Orange Handled Scissors, cut smaller pieces of felt, based off of the size of your personal needs – ie: size of your child’s crayon container and notebook.
