Deluxe Wooden Standing Art Easel
The Melissa & Doug Easel makes any room into an art studio! Our double-sided, adjustable-height, kid-sized art easel includes a dry-erase board, chalkboard, locking paper-roll holder (fits either a 46cm or 30cm wide paper roll), child-safe paper cutter, four easy-grip clips, and a plastic tray to attach to each side of the Deluxe Standing Easel. Assembly is easy, so there's little waiting for the next masterpiece! Children's easels are recommended for building fine motor skills and proper pencil grip - great for beginning writers! Use the chalkboard and white board surfaces of our wooden easel as the ideal practice surface for a child's first letters and words. Paint, paint cups, and paint brushes sold separately.
Age: 2+ years
Size: 119 x 69 x 66 cm
- Give clues and have the child draw what you describe and then switch and draw what the child describes to you -- get ready for some silliness!
- Draw a shape on the dry-erase board while the child draws a shape on the chalkboard. Switch sides. Add a shape or line to the child's drawing while the child adds a shape or line to yours. Continue switching sides adding to each other's drawings until you both agree the masterpieces are complete!
- Play drawing games, such as tic-tac-toe or hangman. Play a guessing game, where one person thinks of a movie, book, place, or phrase, then tries to draw it (no letters allowed!) while the other person tries to guess what it is!
- Use the easel to play school! Have kids be the "teacher" and set up dolls or stuffed animals as "students." They can use the chalkboard to teach the class the ABCs, simple math problems, or to write "homework" assignments.
