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".
A NOTE ON SHIPPING: Only the smallest plastic board is eligible for free shipping. The larger boards will be charged full price for shipping and are excluded from any free shipping promotion, including "Free shipping when you spend $125".
