Simple Drawing Table

Just off our kitchen we have a little area where the girls can draw and paint. The table they use was bought last year from a closing down preschool and is very well loved, the top is covered in texta and other marks so I had been considering covering the surface with something. 
I didn't want it to be anything too fussy (it's an art table after all!) and this solution has worked really well so far providing a nice workable surface that doesn't get in the way of their activities.

* large bulldog clips
* roll of paper
(we buy ours from the stationary section in Coles for around $2 or $3 a roll)

It's as simple as cutting the paper roll to the length of the table and then securing each end to the table top with the clips.

Our table isn't very wide so we just used two at each end.

The girls love their drawing table and add creations to it constantly. When it gets a bit full we just unclip it and change the paper over for a new length.

  1. I will try this with Pebble tomorrow. I always cut our paper roll into small sheets. Why didn't I think of this? :)
