Who Will Love This: Is arts and crafts time your child’s favorite part of the day? Give them all the tools they need to develop and explore their creative sides with our Double-Sided Table Top Easel, while providing them the early learning tools they’ll need to thrive in school settings.

Skills at Play: Color, letter, and number recognition; fine motor skills; imagination; creative expression

Gift Tip: Add a “Happy Birthday!” message to both sides of the Tabletop Easel (one in chalk, the other in magnetic letters or dry-erase marker), and keep it stashed away until gift time. When the guest of honor is ready to open presents, voila—the birthday girl or boy gets an awesome creative learning toy AND a celebratory message to boot!

Countless Ways to Play: Use the included paper roll and supplies to make, decorate, and fly paper airplanes in a DIY aerial show! Play Hangman games head-to-head, with players using either the dry-erase board or the blackboard! Try a kids’ version of Pictionary—come up with cards that have objects to draw, and see how many players can get right!

Plays Well With: If you gift your child the Deluxe Double-Sided Tabletop Easel, be sure to stock up on additional arts & crafts supplies so the learning fun doesn’t have to end just because a marker runs out or a chalk piece breaks. Here’s a helpful checklist of additional arts & crafts accessories you may want to consider adding to your easel set-up:
