LC's Easel

The original intent for the day was to create one of these while LC and Jace napped.

You can find out how to make one by following this link.  It was a recent pin on Pinterest and I've been anxious to make one for Miss RefusetoWrite.

I went to the garage and found a box I'd reserved for the project, but as I prepared to cut into it, it occurred to me that the box in its original form might work out better for a multiple-squib art center.

And, since Pudge needed the fine motor workout anyway...and refused to nap as usual...I decided to put her to work.

It required some cutting...

...some ripping...

...some gluing...

...some sticking...

...some glue painting...

...LOTS of glue painting.

Some contact paper, clothespins, and strips of velcro later....voila.

An easel equipped for double damage.
And, when the art box isn't in use, we can flip it over and store our art goodies inside.  Not bad.

Biggs has requested a hanging hook for his blouse, but other than that, I think it was a sloppy success.
