Save vs Splurge: Art Easels For Kids

Pin It

Let’s get creative! Kids love to express their creativity through drawing, painting and coloring. They love to mix colors, draw shapes and practice writing the letters of the alphabet they’ve learned in school or with mom. Give your kiddo an art surface of their own with a double-sided art easel!

Save: Choose Ikea’s Mala Easel ($15) for a super affordable — and double-sided! — alternative that folds flat for storage when not in use. The birch frame matches with any decor style or color scheme in your child’s room or playroom! Mala Chalk ($2, for box for 24) and Mala Paper Roll ($5) sold separately.

Splurge: P’kolino’s new Little One’s Art Easel ($80) has a chalkboard on one side and whiteboard on the other — perfect for two little artists to create together. Paper roll and chalk included.
