When I was young one of my favorite things to do when we were at restaurants was to color. There was something magical and special that while the adults talked about topics way above my head, I could be in my own world coloring. At times it would not matter how long the meal was as long as I had my coloring books.
The biggest challenge I had was the transportation of the coloring books and the coloring implements. I used bags, but if the crayons spilled out and were left in the car on a hot day, that would mean a new set was needed. After a while I got a smaller bag, and tried to condense everything I needed in a neat stack. Despite my best efforts, these methods never worked.
When I recently saw the Crayola Color Wonder On-The-Go sets, I wondered where they were all those years ago.
