I love any product which encourages children to be creative. The Casdon Wooden Easel is brilliant for getting children to write and draw and create whatever they want. It is very versatile and you can use it for so many different things, playing schools, practising spelling and handwriting, or simply creating beautiful pictures.
It is a good idea to give children a range of different surfaces to write on and this wooden easel is perfect for that.

The easel comes with accessories, water beakers, chalk, and a wiper. This means you can get started straight away.

The wooden easel costs around £25 which is a good price for something so strong and durable. It is the perfect way to encourage your child with their writing, painting and drawing.
