paint table for toddlers

Now that I’m back to work, the weekends feel more precious than ever.  We did art all day Saturday.  It was sooo much fun.  First, I covered a bench with a table cloth.  Benches are the perfect height for toddlers and work great for a play date.  The kids can be on both sides and it’s long so there is plenty of room.  Ikea makes cheap plastic white shower curtains that we use for table clothes all the time.  Then I put out a few paints, a roller, some pipe cleaners, popsicle sticks, paint brushes and corks.  Gigi went to town.  The roller was a huge hit.  I will definitely bring it out again.  I also found some old heart cut outs that we used as a stencil.

Gigi was busy for almost 45 minutes.  It was great.  Next step is to buy a binder to put all of the girl’s artwork.  I can see this getting out of hand fast.  There’s only so many placemats we can make.
