Melissa & Doug Deluxe Standing Easel
The first easel on this list is the awesome Melissa & Doug Deluxe Standing Easel which is for kids aged 3 and up and stands at 3 feet 9 inches high.
We are really impressed with this easel as it has everything that your child will need. One side features a chalkboard so they can make some cool chalk drawings and keep your driveway free from chalk! The other side is a dry erase board where they can draw with pens. What we love about this is the way it is just so easy to clean both sides. You just give them a wipe and they are ready for their next piece of art.
With the Melissa & Doug standing easel you also get some great bonuses like two trays that sit at the bottom of each side where they can store pens, chalk, a drink and anything else they may need.
There is also some easy to use clips at the top so they can clip a piece of paper to the easel. You are going to love how easy it is to fold this up and put away once they have finished drawing.
Easel For Two with Bonus Magnetic Letters/Numbers by Step2
The Easel For Two by Step2 is the perfect easel for younger kids. It’s 3 feet 7 inches high and made from strong plastic, we feel this easel is made to take a bit of a beating from the kids.
One side features a good sized chalkboard and a tray to keep all their chalk nicely organized. The other side of the easel features a dry erase board which they can use pens on.
Now that’s not all as this dry erase board is also magnetic, so your child can have fun sticking the 77 included letters on it. This is an excellent way for them to learn how to make words. Just make sure dad does not think it is funny to put naughty words on here!
Both sides of this easel have clips which your child can use if they want to draw on paper. Once they are finished this easel can be easily folded away for storage. The Step2 is a great easel for toddlers it can be used solo or together with a friend and it will definitely keep your child entertained for hours.
Flip and Doodle Desk with Stool Easel by Step2
The Flip and Doodle Desk with Stool Easel by Step2 is one of the most adorable easels on this list! The idea of this easel is that your child will be sitting down while they work so it comes with a cool little stool.
The height of the easel is just over 2 feet, but as they will be sitting down this is fine. To create some amazing pieces of art there’s a large magnetic dry erase board which also has a paper clip to hold craft paper.
What we really love about the Step2 Flip and Doodle desk is the way it has so many places for storage. There are four large tubs, a tray and a paintbrush holder all on the front! This means there is no more excuse for paper, pens and a ton of other art supplies being spread all over the house!
On the back of the easel you’ll find another storage section. They say that this is for books, but we feel this would also be a great place to keep a good supply of drawing paper.
Fold and Go Art Studio by Crayola
Next on our list for best easels for toddlers we find a product from Crayola. We love the strong, but still very cute design of the Fold and Go Art Studio and feel that for younger kids it would be a great little easel for all their artistic needs! This is a sit down easel that’s 2 feet 4 inches high and it comes with a cute little stool for them to sit on and jump off when you are not there!
The Crayola is a two in one easel. With the board raised it has a large area that a piece of paper can be attached to for drawing and painting. You can then flip the board down and use the other side which is a chalkboard. It is important to note that this easel does not come with a dry erase board.
One really smart design of this easel is how there’s storage at the front for when they are using the drawing board, but when it’s flipped down the storage is at the back.
This is a fun, quality easel for toddlers, especially if your child prefers to draw on paper so they can keep their art work.
Paw Patrol Wooden Double Sided Activity Easel with Storage – Best Easels For Toddlers
If your child loves Paw Patrol then the Paw Patrol Easel is the only easel on their list.
Kids are going to think this is just awesome and it can’t get much better for a Paw Patrol lover! Your child will get a real kick out of the Paw Patrol design of this easel. Chase and Marshall watch as your kids draw which is something they will really like.
The Paw Patrol easel is made from strong wood and standing at 4 feet high. This is a double sided easel with one side being a chalkboard and the other a dry erase board. Both sides are easy to clean and the easel can be easily folded away once art time is over.
At the bottom you’ll two large Paw Patrol tubs which can be used to keep all of their art supplies organized and off the living room floor! This is a great easel and it is worth noting that it is also available in Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Frozen and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

The easel on one side has a large magnetic dry erase board and at the bottom of this side there’s an area that has three good sized pots which could be used for paint, brushes or crayons. On the other side you’ ll find a chalkboard. We are impressed with how large this chalkboard is and are sure your kids will have a lot of fun with it.
At the very top you’ll find a paper roller for an almost unlimited supply of paper. This is very handy as it saves you having to have a stockpile of boxes of drawing paper.

3-in-1 Standing Easel with 75 Magnetic Letters, Rainbow Chalk, Eraser, and Easel Paper by Imagination Generation
The 3-in-1 Standing Easel is a really smart looking easel that’s just over 3 feet tall. Why is this called 3 in 1?
Well first of all, one side of the easel is a magnetic dry erase board that is easy to wipe down. Secondly the other side has a large chalkboard and then for the third….. well actually it could either be the fact the dry erase board is magnetic or the fact there is a paper roller at the top of the easel! So when you think about it this easel actually has four great features.
There’s a large flat area at the bottom where your child can store all of their art supplies such as pens, chalk and anything else they may need.

On one side of the easel there’s a magnetic dry erase board. This is a multi functional board that they can draw on with pen, stick magnets on or even clip a bit of paper onto thanks to the paper clips.
