One of the best ways to help a child explore his/her creative ability is to let them draw, color, paint and shift without boundaries and limits. Therefore having a kid’s sized easel, like this 4-in-1 Flipping Floor Easel is a perfect vessel to enhance their creative juices.
This easel was very easy to set up and required no tools to get the job done. From opening the box to getting it ready for use took only minutes.
When one first looks at this easel the first thing you notice is the size and color. First, this is not your typical easel. This easel small and child size. Everything from the height off the ground to the locking bolts are child sized making it simple to use. Too often we have to force our children to use adult sized tools be creative, however this is not the case. Even the bright vibrant colors scream creativity for the luck child who gets to create.
What I found cool about this easel is its versatility. If a child wants to switch from a chalk board to a white board with a simple twist of a couple child friendly bolts and a rounding of the board, this can easily be accomplished. The other cool thing that has provided hours of entertainment in our classroom is the ability to take a role of paper and have it easily used by the children. The only thing we need to do is invest in some holders for the chalk, markers and paintbrushes.
This learning tool has been a big hit in our classroom. Our refrigerator at home is now full of masterpieces that may one day fill the halls of an art gallery. This 4 in 1 easel is a definite must for any classroom.
