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.
