This entry is the first in a series I will be doing called Easel Starters. In each case, I will provide a visual of the easel starter and simple instructions for you to use to introduce it to your preschooler.
What are Easel Starters?
An easel starter is a simple invitation to create art that you set up while the child is away (either out of the house, napping or doing quiet time in another room). It is important that your child not see you setting up the easel starter since its magic lies in the discovery that the child makes both in terms of finding the materials sitting out and also in terms of learning about how those materials can create a piece of art.
