This Retro “Happy Campers Coloring Book” Makes A Perfect Trip Companion

One of the best things about going RVing is being able to kick back and relax.

A great way to do this, especially if you have a creative side, is by expressing yourself through art. We all have a little Van Gogh in us somewhere.

But you don’t need to paint a whole masterpiece, or have years of art experience. You and your little ones alike will love filling out these new retro-style coloring books by Thaneeva McArdle.

You’ll be able to color everything from vintage campers (and a Volkswagen Bus) to animals, houses, trees, flowers, Gypsy Wagons, Hot Air Balloons, and more.

It comes printed on high-quality, extra-thick paper to prevent bleed-through.

So you’ll be able to use almost any kind of coloring medium, including markers, colored pencils, gel pens and watercolors.

They’re printed on one side only, with a charming quote about camping on the backside.

The pages also come pre-perforated, so you can easily pull out your masterpieces and hang them on the fridge.

It’s a perfect, fun little book to take with you on a trip, or as a gift for the creative camper in your life who already seems to have everything.

Besides, coloring can be way more enjoyable than staying inside addicted to your iPhone. You can get creative with the book outside on a hot, sunny day, or just take it along for a back-up rainy day activity.

Vibrant examples are included to inspire you, along with a guide to basic art techniques like: patterning, shading and color theory.

The groovy illustrations will take you back to the ’60s. Try filling them in with bright, vivid colors like yellow, orange and red for an all-over retro feel.

A wanderlust quote is featured on the back of every design. Here are a few examples:

“A crowded camper is better than an empty castle.”

“Grab your coat, leave a note, and run away with me.”

According to several of the reviews on Amazon, the quotes don’t seem to interfere with the designs on the front.
