All About Toy Easels

A toy easel is a perfect accessory for your child to use in order to expand their creativity. There are a wide range to choose from and you can ensure that your little one can paint or draw to their hearts content, using a variety of tools and materials.

Multi functional Art Easel

If you like the option of being able to use the easel for a variety of tasks, you can purchase a multi- functional easel that includes a large chalkboard on one side so that a child can work with different coloured chalks.

These boards are easy to use and easy to wipe clean. You can buy a chalkboard eraser to wipe away markings or alternatively you can simply use a damp cloth to wipe the chalk off.

If your child wants to do some painting or draw something using crayons, coloured pencils or felt tip pens, you can simply take a sheet of paper and attach it to the easel using little easel clamps or some blue tack.

This is a simple and effective way to get multiple functions from your easels for kids.

Two Sided Toy Easel

A double sided easel is perfect if you have more than one child or if you organise plenty of play dates for your little one. These boards are made with the ability to work on both sides of the easel.

They can either consist of two chalk boards or one chalk board and one plastic side that you can use to clamp sheets of paper to.

The better toy easels will also come equipped with a very useful storage tray. You can place all the paint pots that a child will need so that it is easily accessible and all the potential mess that can or will occur is contained within one area. This will make it much easier to clean up afterwards.

It is a good idea to place something on the floor underneath the easel to catch any spillages that occur. You can choose to put down old newspapers or buy a plastic mat that is easy to wipe clean.

Accessories That Can Be Included With Some Toy Easels

Depending on the type of easel you buy, you can find that some come with added extras. Some easels will come will a roll of white paper that is easy to attach and a child will be able to tear off once they have completed their masterpiece.

Other easels will come with its own set of paints and paint pots and others will come with a set of chalk and chalk board eraser.

The best thing to do is to look at what is available and whether it is better to go for the all inclusive package deals or if you are better off buying everything separately.
