Nadi and I met at the UW-Stout Early Childhood Conference this past spring. I remember walking around the corner and seeing this colorful sign and was intrigued. Nadi had a very positive energy and a wonderful smile. We talked for quite a while about early childhood and her product, the Beeasel.
By now you’re probably wondering, what is a Beeasel?
It’s a child’s first easel and it’s …
• A simple, convenient easel
• Ideal for classrooms and daycare centers
• Entire class can paint at the same time
• Promotes proper pre-writing hand grip
• Visually accessible for young children
• Easy to clean
• Easy to fold for compact storage
• 100% recyclable materials
