Wooden School Colouring Set £3.95 @Dotcomgiftshop
The site does warn of a choking hazard associated with this toy and stresses that it is not suitable for children under the age of 3 years and should not be used without adult supervision so do bear that in mind.
It's a cute little item for a budding artist, and strikes me as ideal for slipping in your bag to ensure that you've always got a means of keeping your little people entertained. I think kids will adore the wooden box with its sliding lid - it's just the sort of thing my 5 year old would get very attached to. I love that it comes with a pencil sharpener, too, because there are few things more irritating to a child than a box full of blunt and unusable coloured pencils.
I'm always amazed at the fact that some paper and coloured pencils can actually buy me a fairly civilised cuppa with my kids in tow. You just might need to pack a notebook to make sure you're never caught short or your budding Picassos might be tempted to start scribbling on the walls.
Be prepared to be presented with endless masterpieces, too!
