plexiglass easel

I had a piece of plexiglass that was left over from some work that was done.  I couldn’t bare the thought of not using it, and so I decided to turn it into an easel.  I had DH make a frame for it, and voilà.

It is hanging in our new atelier, AKA, E’s old room.  It is located near the window, and I have put tools to be used with this on the windowsill for now.

E loves to write on this.  Most of the time, he writes his “letters”

and although we have still a lot of work to do on writting skills, here he is reciting his letters that he just wrote:

 

over and over again: (he is chanting the ABC song while scribbling)

 

The nice thing about this easel is that it is lightweight, so E can carry it wherever he wants to use it.  I have seen it put it somewhere and try to draw over what the easel was on.

But when I had this in mind, it was for a summer use.  I cannot wait to be able to use it OUTSIDE, it should be very interesting.  I’ll post picture, where the hot weather finally hit us.

  1. That’s an excellent idea (aren’t you afraid of your children writing on the wall ? I don’t think my (almost)3yo would “see” the difference beetween the frame and the wall… ! maybe she’s just too young for now ?)
