Trifold Easel

Art supplies can be expensive, messy, and prone to disappearing and turning up in couch cushions and washing machines—a parent's nightmare! This set, however, makes artistic production a dream, with its ingenious organization system that puts every one of the 48 oil pastels, 48 crayons, 24 color pencils, 18 watercolor cakes, and 12 broad markers in its place. With a double sided paper easel that makes playdates a breeze, and a handy color wheel to introduce color mixing, this art kit has got it all! (DM Creations, $19.99)
