There’s almost nothing my kids like more than the freedom to CREATE. Lovers of all things artsy, my kids are eager to draw, paint, write, cut, glue, and work on their next masterpiece. As a parent, I’m always on the look-out for products and companies that inspire their creativity. We had the opportunity to try out a few incredible products from Lakeshore Learning that were made with budding artists in mind. Ready to get crafty? Let’s see what you can create with Lakeshore Learning!
We are in love with the Roll-On Painters! This 10 color set is a must-have for every young artist. The colors glide on through the movable roller ball, making these paints no-spill (yes, you heard that right!), and fun and easy to use.
My two-year-old and four-year-old love to craft and create with the Roll-On Painters. They are easy enough for them to use without help or instruction. I love that they can paint (something they ask to do all the time) without fear of paint winding up all over the house! They love getting to create bright and colorful paintings.
I love watching their creativity come alive when they use the rollers. My son loves to make bold strokes or draw traditional pictures, while my daughter loves to make endless squiggles or cute polka-dots. Either way, you can’t go wrong.
I decided to use a few of their paintings to create some one-of-a-kind valentines. I allowed the kids to squiggle and paint to their hearts content, encouraging the usage of as many colors as desired. Then after allowing the picture to dry, I cut heart shapes. Bam! Instant valentines that are sure to put a smile on anyone’s face. So much fun, and so many possibilities. What will YOU create with Roll-On Painters?!
Another hot product from Lakeshore Learning is the 3-Way Tabletop Easel. Knowing that we are planning on homeschooling next year, I’ve had my eye on this for awhile! It did not disappoint, and I cannot wait to use it next year.
In the meantime, this portable easel is perfect for afternoon projects, LOTS of drawing, and tons of writing practice. I love any product that allows my kids to draw and practice writing without the usage of paper. With this handy easel, my kids can practice name-writing, letters, or draw the world’s next masterpiece using either chalk or dry erase markers without ever wasting a single sheet of scratch paper!
Does your kid love to paint? No problem! The 3-Way Tabletop Easel comes with two clips, perfect for attaching a piece of paper. The handy tray is the right size for no-spill paint cups, which go perfectly with the Heavy-Duty Chubby Brushes! These brushes are just the right size for your budding artist and designed with young artists in mind. Many young children haven’t developed the fine motor skills necessary for mastering traditional super-thin paint brushes, leaving them frustrated. These Heavy-Duty Chubby Brushes are PERFECT, and allow your child to create on their terms. The set comes with 10 brushes, color-coded to keep paint colors separate (and to provide an easy opportunity to talk about colors!) with your preschooler or toddler. They are priced right and the perfect tool for your little painters.
