Kid’s Travel Art Kit Instructions
First, you will need:
- an empty DVD case
- Exact-o knife
- Self-healing cutting sheet
- Fabric (2 feet worked perfectly)
- Fabric glue (I used Liquid Stitch)
- Cardboard scraps
- 12 Colored Pencils
First, I took an empty DVD case and cut out the circular part that holds the DVD. This was the hardest part of the entire project. I placed the cutting pad in between the black plastic shell and the front plastic sheath. If I didn’t, my Exact-o knife would have cut a hole in the cover of the case. Not very pretty. I ran my Exact-o knife back and forth, around the circle, gently sawing my way through, until finally…
Victory!! Next, I cut my cardboard to fit in that half of the DVD case. Make sure to leave at least a quarter-inch between the edge of the cardboard and the case. If you fail to (which I did, my first try), your art case will not snap shut.
If you loved this and want more fun, easy activities for your kids, definitely look into Kiwi Crate. All of the activities are STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) aligned so that our kids are learning while they’re playing!
