There are some simple reasons why a child should have access to a kid’s easel as they are growing up. Easels provide large, exciting spaces for children to express their perception, feelings, interests, and creativity through art. They tend to be set up at eye level which is how children see the world and so they are quickly drawn to using an easel. By standing at an easel kids are working and developing essential muscle groups. Large muscle groups are made to work as they extend their arms out in front of them to make brush strokes. Smaller muscle groups in the hands and fingers are used to hold pens or pencils and develop fine motor skills.
Adults can help make this an even more exciting resource for your children - let them paint with sponges or feathers for a different experience, give them different kinds of paper to paint or draw on, give your kids objects to paint or draw - for example place a flower on a table nearby. Even let two children paint or draw together to learn about taking turns and cooperation. Our range of children’s easels are a great addition to any playroom, bedroom, home, and classroom. With multi use easels, height adjustable easels and double-sided easels we have got most options covered for you – they fold away for easy storage and we even have a wall mounted easel if you are tight on space. If you prefer your children to be seated whilst they engage in art and craft work then see our range of activity play tables. There is also a range of other products that have chalkboard and dry wipe board features.
