Easel for Little Artists

Introduction: Easel for Little Artists

Whit this project you can express the artist that there is in your child. very cheap and easy to make, this project can bring to our children spend a lot of time painting. The end result is was designed to be easy to use, even for children as young as 2 years (as you can see from the photos). measurements are related to easel for children aged 5 and 7 years of age (height from 110 cm and 130 cm).

Step 1: Tools and Materials


2 x Wood batten 155 x 2 x 2 cm (61,7 x 0,79 x 0,79 inch)
1 x Wood batten 45 x 2 x 2 cm (17,73 x 0,79 x 0,79 inch)
1 x Wood batten 14,5 x 2 x 2 cm (5,71 x 0,79 x 0,79 inch)
1 x Wood batten 45 x 4 x 1 cm (17.73 x 1.58 x 0.39 inch)
1 x Wood batten 80 x 4 x 1 cm (31.52 x 1.58 x 0.39 inch)
1 x Wood a little bigger than a sheet of A3 paper 43 x 31 x 0,5 cm for support of the sheet paper (16.94 x 12.21 x 0.2 inch)
1 x Hinge
Iron wire
Paper cups coffee


1 spay can

Step 2: Realization

Assemble the various strips of wood as shown in the photographs according to the height of your child. Make small holes on the support of the sheets to be able to bind to the easel and make holes for the support of paper cups.

Step 3: Holders for Paper Cups

Perhaps the most interesting idea of this instructable is how to solve the problem of where to put the colors. I solved by using simple paper cups for coffee. An affordable and clean solution: at the end of the game you throw the paper cups.

Step 4: Playing at the Young Artists

And finally we did a little show and sold to the relatives of our works of art (the money went into the moneybox of the children).

Of course the painting robot instructable was the most expensive!
