Wood play and painting boards are made of Baltic birch plywood with a water-resistant finish in the USA.
Recycled plastic play and painting boards are made of recycled plastic in the EU and are impervious to moisture.
Paint: Used in Waldorf classrooms, and at home, for wet-on-wet painting. Put a sheet of watercolour paper on the board and wet the paper with a sponge. Gently wipe away all excess water. Apply Stockmar watercolours or other water colour paints with wild abandon or careful gentle strokes. Artists as small as 3 years old enjoy this technique as it produces a dreamy effect as the colours dance together.
Play: Anywhere you don't have a table but could use a hard surface, this board comes to the rescue. Take it outside for drawing and painting in nature, play a boardgame on it, or use it as a picnic "table".
