Today the boys were busy cleaning their old easel so we can consign it this week and then they used our brand new easel that we won! It is much higher than the old one. They were very excited as it had much more room for the paint pots and also there were trays on both sides.It was out all day and they would go back and forth whenever the mood struck them. I wish it could be out all the time but we just don't have the space. It folds up and rest against the kitchen wall so at least we can get to it much more easily than bringing it up from the basement.
