Art supplies to bring camping and activity ideas for kids

The summer is a great time to spark creativity with kids.  I usually stock up on art supplies from the art store or the dollar store for when the kids have friends over and I always bring a small amount of art supplies whenever we are away.  It is nice to have some supplies for the kids when they need some down time out of the sun.  Whenever I put out supplies, the kids seem to gather and enjoy creating outside.  Here are some ideas of crafts and art activities to do when you are camping or away on holidays.
