(US & Canada)
I love allowing the kids to express themselves through all forms of media: play dough, paint, chalk, crayons, etc. To see what comes from the minds of an 18 month old and 3 year old can be fun, amazing, exciting… and at times, okay most of the time, it’s MESSY!
When you give my kids crayons and paper…smiles will GLOW from their faces immediately. My son will describe what he is drawing (thank goodness, because is looks like a bunch of scribbles to me). Kids will color & draw with a purpose…so what better way to encourage their artistic skills than with an art easel (and hopefully eliminate some of the mess)!
The dining room table has been the “activity center” for most of their creations. For Christmas we were looking at buying an art easel or desk for the kids. Merry Christmas to Logan & Kira EARLY…The Magic Cabin offered me an opportunity to review an Art Easel (made by Little Partners Inc.).
The Art Easel is designed to be used with The Learning Tower. If you do not own The Learning Tower, the Art Easel comes with a wall mount attachment for stand-alone use. This item is intended for ages 18 months and up (perfect for my 18 month old & 3 year old). Available in six colors: blue, dark cherry, ebony, green, natural & red. We picked natural to match the majority of our dining room/living room furniture. The Art Easel measures 18″ x 23-1/2″ x 6″. I love that it’s big enough for both kids to color at the same time…but small enough that it doesn’t take up tons of room.
- Easy to assemble (I was able to put it together with 2 kids climbing on me. My husband attached the wall mount & was just as impressed with how easy it was.)
- Can be a white board or flip it over for the chalkboard
- If you use washable crayons, they wipe off the wood & board easily (Yup…my kids allowed me to test that within a few minutes of coloring.)
- Magnetic (blue magnet included to hold the artwork, but my kids enjoyed added their alphabet magnets too)
- Takes up little space when attached to wall
- Room for both kids to play on (though it would be awesome to have 2 art easels)
- Screw holes for wall mount were measured perfectly for the studs in our wall (THANK GOODNESS)
- Screw for wall attachment was too short (only went into wall 1/4″)
