Our wonderful neighbor, Esther, gave us this great easel to use as long as we would like and it has been fantastic! It has a chalkboard on one side and a dry erase board on the other. Plus, it has a roll of paper on the top that can be pull down for my budding Picasso to express whatever is flowing through her little creative body at the moment. And I have to say, GOD BLESS CRAYOLA! I love washable markers, chalks, crayons. I don't know what I would do without them. I guess little red beard here would look pretty different if they were permanent.
