How to choose a table for crafts activities for your kid?
For crafts activities and creative development, a kid should have a certain place in a room.
Be more specific – a children’s table. But before buying it is necessary to understand the
nuances and differences of this piece of furniture.
In age about 1,5-2 years there comes a moment when children begin to realize themselves
as individuals: they strive to do a lot on their own, repeat what their parents do, find
interesting activities for themselves.
Reduced copies of adult things help children realize their own importance and significance
in this world. Kids’ tables (and chairs for children, which are often included) serve the same
purpose. Kids should have a place in the room where they can draw, sculpt, play board
games – do “important things” like mom or dad at the desk.
Children’s table: what should we pay attention to?
1. Tables for children must be strong, stable, but not heavy, and must be appropriate for the
age and height of the child. It is better to navigate according to the information below:
Age Height of a child Height of a table

2-4yo 35-39in 15,5-17,5in
3-6yo 38-45in 17,5-19,5in
Creativity has no boundaries, that’s why children’s drawings from paper often transfer to the
walls. To prevent this, a kid should take a separate piece of the wall. It can be pasted over
with special wallpaper-coloring or painted with slate paint, on which you can draw with
chalk. If this is not possible, then chalkboards and paper canvases mounted directly on the
wall will be a real Solution. It allows a child to draw both standing and sitting.
The properly organized storage system is a guarantee of an order, which is often missing in
creative corners. Here you can use plastic and metal containers, where it is convenient to
put paints and albums. Pencils and pens conveniently put in metal cans, decorative
buckets. Fastening supplies for creativity is also convenient to put into different pockets or
board with holes (pegboard), roof rails and magnetic boards.
Even the youngest artist dreams of his own Exhibition. A wall at the creative corner can be
decorated with drawings of the child. For example, place them in a frame or fasten with
decorative clothespins. All kids will be pleased to admire their work and it can be a good
