Melissa and Doug Deluxe Standing Easel
The Melissa and Doug Deluxe Standing Easel ASIN: B0002AUWKG is made for children ages three and up. It adjusts for height, so children can use it for many years. It can be folded flat, so storing it in a closet or behind a door is a space saving feature apartment dwellers will appreciate.
The easel is solid wood and has sturdy fasteners that are simple for adjusting the height and holding the easel at the appropriate angle. It is double-sided with one side a dry erase board and the other a chalkboard. The easel will hold an 18” wide roll of paper, which threads through the top and down one side to give children a large, easy to access painting surface. The paper tears off easily when the artwork is complete and ready for gallery viewing. There are also clips at the top of the easel to hold individual sheets of paper.
It has durable plastic trays on both sides to hold all the paints, crayons and chalks a little artist could want. The chalkboard side has an open tray while the opposite side has a tray that contains cups to hold water and paint, as well as brushes and other supplies.
Melissa and Doug make several companion sets with all the art supplies and paper the budding artist can use. The paper roller accommodates 18” wide butcher paper, so any paper roll up to that size will fit on the easy-to-change dowel.
Put a plastic tarp or other waterproof drop cloth down beneath your little artist’s work area to protect your floor. If the easel is set up as a regular item in the room, you may wish to invest in an office chair mat or carpet protector to keep the flooring clean. This is safer than a thin mil piece of plastic that can move out of place or trip up the unwary passerby or enthusiastic artist.
