It has a large wipe-clean chalk-board on one side and a large wipe-clean white-board on the other. Your little one can use chalks or ELC whiteboard makers on the easel, or you can clip paper on to either side for painting and drawing. The white-board is also magnetic, so it's ideal for magnetic letters and numbers (sold separately). There is a handy tray underneath this double-sided easel for crayons and paints, and handy clips to hold the paper at the top of the easel. This plastic easel is fun to use for making art both indoors and outside, and great for two children to use at the same time too.
