Kids Outdoor Acrylic Painting Easel

The frame is made from three 8′ 2×4’s and the supplies shelves are made from a 8′ 1×6. Other than that all you need is 3/4″ quarter round trim to hold in the 36″ x 30″ sheet of acrylic. Making the Kids Acrylic Painting Easel Base From the 2×4’s, cut 2 frame legs to 54″ long, 2 frame rails to 36″ long, and 2 feet to 24″ long. From the 1×6 cut 2 supply shelves 36″ long. Drill pocket holes on the ends of the frame rails and on one end of the frame legs. Attach the frame rails to the frame legs with 2″ pocket hole screws to leave a 30″ x 36″ opening.

To soften the feet, cut 45 degree bevels on the ends of them at the miter saw. Attach the frame legs to the feet with 2″ pocket hole screws. To square the frame, add two 8″ braces with 45 degree cuts on each end. Tales of a Monkey, a Bit, and a Bean: The Coolest Cardboard House EVER!

Sin embargo, si nos paramos a pensar sobre esto, no nos costará mucho darnos cuenta de que hacemos que nuestras carencias sean visibles.

Así es que los niños, como los animales, perciben nuestros miedos e inseguridades y las hacen suyas con gran facilidad. Ante este panorama, lo cierto es que debemos de esforzarnos porque esto ocurra en menor medida. Pero, ¿cómo podemos hacerlo? En primer lugar teniendo en cuenta que somos el mejor ejemplo a seguir para los niños, por lo que debemos fomentar nuestro autocuidado. No queremos niños que tengan que ser perfectos porque no queremos cultivar la soberbia; queremos niños que se quieran y confíen en sí mismos y en su potencial. 2–Corrige sus errores pero desde el cariño.
