Alex's Floor Standing Easel
(Alex $95 Score:) Taking the paints out of doors gives young artists a new scene- and if you add a bit of white paint to the colors they have an all new palette that looks like summer. Adding different paints and paper often inspires kids. Alex's wooden easel has a chalk board on one side and a dry-erase board on the other. Comes with a roll of paper, but we find that using clips and a pad of paper is easier for kids to handle with independence.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2003.

2003 Awards
Beka Adjustable Drawing Desk with Paper
(Beka, Inc. $25 Score:) This wooden tabletop easle is a handsome, adjustable slantboard for art projects. We think this is an especially good choice for those who don't have the space for a stand-up easel but want a dedicated surface for drawing, painting or other creative ventures. SNAP: This slantboard will be useful on a tabletop for kids who are not able to use the typical standing easel. It has smooth edges, adjusts to various angles and has a wipe off surface.

2004 Awards
Crayola Dough
(Crayola $1.99 Score:) A super-soft colorful dough that comes in four-or six-pack sets in vivid colors. Will air-harden. 2 & up SNAP ACTIVITY: Encourage school age kids to shape snakes and then use them for making letters or numbers that will harden. Paste finished dried letters onto wood for name plates. Or make small disks of dough and have kids trace their pictures or names in the douch with a toothpick. Make a hole at the top and when dry this can become a necklace.

Magna Doodle Color Plus
(Ohio Art $17.99 Score:) There’s a new twist to your old Magna Doodle. Use one side of the stylus and you get a bluish line; use the other side and you get a reddish line. It says red or blue on the package, but it’s neither. Unlike previous color versions, this does erase with three or more swipes of the “eraser” and there is a wide blade tool that can turn the red to blue. But in all honesty, the original Magna Doodle ($14.99 5) is a BLUE CHIP that works better and remains a classic. 3 & up.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2007.

2007 Award
My Finger Paint
(Alex $4.99 Score:) You get almost 12 oz. of vibrant fingerpaint in each of these cleverly designed pump bottles. Available in many colors, but don’t overlook the fun of mixing colors with the basic primary colors. 2 & up. Fingerpainting is more than fun, its a great way for kids to make direct contact with the paint without the need to manipulate the paint brush. It's truly hands-on and a legit way to be messy.
