Celebrate Children’s Art Week by Stocking Your Creative Spaces With These Essential Resources from MOE…

Posted by Michael MOE, 18 June, 2021


With the weather giving us whiplash right now, and the rain today forcing us to change our outdoor adventure plans a tad, we’ve been turning our minds to keeping little ones busy with some fantastic art-inspired activities because, drum roll please, next week is Children’s Art Week. Running from 28th June – 18th July 2021, this UK-wide programme run by Engage, the National Association for Gallery Education, gives us the perfect opportunity to break out the arts-and-craft supplies and whip up a host of mini masterpieces.

To kickstart all that creative expression, take a look at our wonderful, handcrafted MOE Shop art-inspired resources to use for Children’s Art Week and beyond…

Our Top Picks for Resources related to Expressive Arts and Design 

Easel: First up you’re going to need an easel, but not just any easel… our MOE Easel has been handmade using pressure treated wood to ensure not only quality, but all-important durability too. It comes with 12 pot holes (pots not included) so there’s plenty of room for a rainbow of colours to work with, plus clips either side to keep those masterpieces in place while they’re being brought to life (and while they’re drying!). Suitable for indoors or outdoors use, the Easel also features clear Perspex which gives extra scope for little ones to paint and mark make on without having to use material, making it not only fun but eco-friendly too.  £ 133.33 excl VAT 


Early Years Easel Low Height Indoor Wooden | for EYFS, KS1, Nursery & SEN: Exactly the same as its bigger sibling above, but lower in height to accommodate smaller tots, this lovely easel is perfect for use at home or in your creative school and nursery spaces.£ 125.00 excl VAT

Chalkboard / Mark Making Board Large: Designed with creative art, mark making or good old fashioned free play in mind, our Chalkboard/Mark Marking Board is large enough for either individual use or to have a little team of artists work on it together to encourage social and team-building skills. It’s sanded down to be super smooth and is ideal as a resource, indoors or outdoors, for children to express themselves and experiment with all kinds of art projects. It also comes in a medium version (£180 inclusive of VAT) which has exactly the same awesome features for hours of art-inspired adventures. £ 233.33 excl VAT (large)

Playhouse: Our handcrafted, stylish Playhouse or Shelter would make a wonderful art studio for all budding creators. Pop in an Easel and a Chalkboard and, voila, you have an airy, bright, dry making-space that children will love!

£ 524.99 excl VAT
