Table Drawing - 1,2,3

You know what they say about the simple things in life, well table drawing is one of them and it is often the best in our house.

1 Cover the table in paper.

2 Draw all over the paper.

3 Hang it up or toss it away later.

It doesn't get much simpler or cleaner than that.

You could try....

  • using butcher's paper, easel paper or backs of old posters. We found our butcher's paper at Riot.
  • covering the dining table, the computer desk, the art/ play table or the outside table. Any table, anywhere can be an art space.
  • putting out pencils, lead pencils (depending on the age), felt pens, crayons, highlighters, chalk (wet or dry)....any type of drawing or writing implement. Go crazy - you could use them all at once! I like to use Crayola Washable Markers (thanks Steph!). Try using markers with varying widths or shapes of tips.

This activity is set up for my girls to do after rest time. It's a space to let them create whatever they would like to this afternoon. Ah the simplicity - I really like it!

Love this idea. My youngest (22mo) is always keener on drawing on everything other than what she is supposed to, so I think she might enjoy drawing on the table.
