Various Brands - Activity/Art Easel Work / Play / Leisure Suitable for stages: 18 - 24 Months
Your toddler will love engaging in creative art and craft activities at home with you. A great way to get started is to buy an activity easel. Vertical surface drawing, painting and activities are great ways to help your child develop upper limb stability and strength, getting their body ready to conquer writing skills later.
Activity easels that have multiple uses will last for years and get used over and over again. Use for painting, drawing with chalk, drawing with whiteboard markers, and attaching magnets. The Art Star 5 in 1 Activity Easel also features a felt board to create interesting felt scenes.
Pair the easel with an art smock and easy to hold paintbrushes or foam pads with washable paint or finger paint, and you'll have hours of fun heading your way.
Don't forget, if you want your toddler to enjoy messy play but you hate the clean-up, you can try putting them in a dry bath to use as a canvas. Clean up time is easy, wash down the canvas and your toddler at the same time.
