Need something to do on those long road trips? Or just feeling very artistic? Try our R82051 Pocket Portfolio, ready set with all the materials you need to make a sketchbook of unique illustrations!

The R82051 Pocket Portfolio is a great kit to bring out even for rainy school days when everyone’s stuck inside! The kit features over 100 printed coloring pages with beautiful illustrations, including everything from a person’s portrait to an ice cream sundae, teddy bear, lady bug and more! The range of coloring pages makes the kit a great repeat project to do whenever you need something to fill in the time for your students.

The kit also includes 8 crayons that you can add to your stash of existing crayons! You can keep the entire kit inside of the package as a handy place to stash all your artwork and materials.

We’ve included an assortment of rubbing plate patterns that you can use to decorate the foreground or background of each scene. Simply place the rubbing plate underneath the sheet of paper. Use the blunt side of a crayon and rub back and forth. The imprint of the rubbing plate underneath will show through the paper to appear as if you’ve colored the sheet in an interesting pattern. Use the rubbing plates to make patterned details on leaves, petals, clothes and more!

Here’s an alternative way to have fun with your coloring kit: Paste on materials to decorate the coloring pages such as colorful mosaics or other fun embellishments!

When you have finished coloring in all the pages in the kit, you can further use your rubbing plates to make cool craft projects!

• Rub designs onto clear protective sheets to make suncatchers

• Use the patterned rubbing plates to make textures for fun spring crowns

• Explore planetary surfaces with our fun paper solar system!
