Using the Light Panel as an Upright Easel


Easels are fun and beneficial.  They really encourage pre-writing skills by “forcing” children to write and paint with the wrist in extension.  Easels also help strengthen arm and shoulder movements.  We love our DIY EASEL, and have incorporated PAINTING WITH LIGHT on our easel in other ways.

We purchased some x-ray boxes in addition to our light panel and had one in an upright position for DOCTORS OFFICE PLAY purposes when my son decided to paint on it.  We’ve done tons of ART ON OUR LIGHT PANEL, but for some reason, never tried painting on it upright.  It’s a simple, beautiful way to paint.

    What type of paint do you use on it and what’s your method or removal? I already own a light box and am trying to decide whether to use the one I have or buy a second just for this purpose :)

    Good idea. You could tape tracing paper on the light box and have the kids paint. Then they could keep the project.
