It may be a good idea to have a separate table for toddlers to work on, in order to cut down on the “mess” they may create by doing all the fun activities we create for them.
This is a table we had since we got for our wedding shower.
We have used it as our main dinning table, and as a breakfast table once we got a bigger dinning set. I had it in the garage with some stuff on it and decided to use it for my toddler to work on for “all table activities messy”. That way, we would not have to worry about stuff getting all over our living room floor nor piling up our other tables inside.
We open the garage door to let the sunlight in and to view the beautiful scenery while we work!
Just set it up, throw a plastic table cloth over it, and let the kids go to work.
Clean-up could always take place later, if time does not permit.
