While I am grateful for the fabulous breeze that we have in the backyard, especially in the summer, it makes it difficult to use the easel. So while in the shower (my 5 minutes of semi-alone time) I came up with this fabulous idea....plexiglass. I have seen the easels that use them but was unwilling to spend that kind of money and I would still be in the same predicament.
So Safi and I made a trip to Home Depot and purchased a piece of plexiglass for about $25. I figured that she could paint directly on it or we could tape paper to it. I screwed it directly to the fence and it has been a hit!!
We also found that it works great with the Crayola Window Markers. Great for practicing those letters!!
