Buy a KidKraft Grand Storage Easel Double-sided with Paper Roll

Updated on December 3, 2012

Bring out the budding artist in your child with a KidKraft Easel.

A Kidkraft easel will allow them to keep all their painting stuff in the one place, so there will be less mess, and it is much easier for a child to paint a picture on an easel than it is for them to stretch across a table risking getting their clothes smeared in wet paint.

Kidkraft was founded in 1968, and make wooden childrens' toys. Many of their products are flat-packed and require self-assembly. Easy to follow instructions are included with every package.

Unlike many toys in today's market, Kidkraft toys are solidly built to the highest standard. Children are rough with toys. It is a waste of money to buy them cheap and poorly built products that will be broken in two days flat.

Kidcraft products are built to last, and their easels are no exception.

Available in light or dark wood, the Kidkraft Espresso Finish Kid's Deluxe Wooden Easel w/ 2 Paint Cups is a solidly constructed art easel that is perfect for your child.

Containing both a white board and a chalk board, your child has a choice of where he wants to work, and indeed like any true artist, may be working on more than one masterpiece at a time.

With plenty of space for crayons, pencils and art brushes, you child will love this easel as he learns to paint, draw and color in pictures.

The Kidkraft Tabletop Easel is perfect if either you don't have lots of room, or perhaps you have a table-surface lying unused in your house that would be perfect for a tabletop easel by Kidkraft.

This easel features a chalk board on one side and a easy-erase surface n the other. It has strong wooden clips to hold the paper firmly in pace, 2 anti-spill paint cups and space for pencil/crayon storage.

Folds up for easy storage.

This is a great way for your child to learn, no matter how young.

If they are old enough to stand up, they are old enough to paint, although supervision is required at all times with children under 3 because at that age everything goes into their mouths, and while paints for children are not poisonous, they aren't edible either.

Children learn through drawing and painting which is the precursor to writing. Getting used to holding a pencil is vital, and if your child has their own easel which they are encouraged to use, there is less chance of them drawing and scribbling on your new wall-paper.

Kidkraft easels are solidly constructed and should withstand the rough and tumble of small children.

The Kidkraft Grand Storage Double Sided Easel with Paper Roll, Storage Bins, and Paint Cups comes complete with a  roll of paper over 75' long (should keep them going for a while!), four storage bins to keep all their pencils, crayons, and artist equipment in, three pain cups and a heavy duty eraser.

With both a chalk board and a white board, this KidKraft easel can entertain several children at once.

Once your children have got their KidKraft Easel, consider buying some nice new art accessories for them, from spare rolls of paper, through coloring crayons to paints and paint accessories. I have listed a few here including that all-important apron to keep his clothes clean.

      Finger paint? Mines would have had that all up the walls and all over the furniture. Kids and finger paint go well with locked empty rooms!

      These are also very fun to put on the table and use to play pictionary, where you draw what you want people to guess. It is a blast! What a perfect little gift for budding artist in my life! Great idea. When I get ready to Buy a KidKraft Easel, I now have the perfect place to buy them!

      I'm always commenting about my godsisters... and I'm going to do it again, sorry. I think my godsister (she's 6) will love this. She's actually going to be 7 in December and she loves to draw! I'm going to consider this as a Christmas/birthday gift. Thanks!

      I remember having something similar as a kid and it was ace...until my friend knocked it over and smashed it. Kidkraft is an easily recognizable brand and quite popular too, next to the Crayola easels and the Melissa and Doug ones too.

      Jolly good hubpage....!!!

      This is a great way to encourage creativity in children! I'd never heard of a Kidkraft easel. I'm pretty sure I would have loved to have one of these as a kid.

      Hey I just went out and bought a white board to do all the drawing lessons on show in the 60DC. Wish I'd known about you doing a hub about a KidKraft Easel, it would have been just right.
