The Outside Easel

On our playground we have an easel. The main part of the easel is clear plastic. We gave the children paint and brushes to use on the easel. While friends were painting other toddlers stood on the opposite side and watched the paint through the plastic. Everyone had so much fun both painting and watching while others painted. We used large pieces of white paper to make a print of their painting when they were finished.
