Imagine that you haven’t heard a sound from your son in more than 10 minutes, which is quite unusual. You decide to check on him. He sees you and his face lights up. With a big grin, he says, “Thanks, Mom, I saw what you bought for me on your dresser.” You move even closer, and see your new cosmetic bag on the table behind him. He has your eyeshadow palette in his left hand, and one of your makeup brushes in his right hand. Just then, it hits you what he meant when he thanked you.
You can’t blame the little guy. He’s got talent to express, and he did that the best way he could. He should be congratulated for his resourcefulness. If you had gotten him a kids’ art table, he wouldn’t have practiced with your expensive makeup. A kids’ art table encourages kids to fully express their creativity. Knowing they have a table on which they can get creative is enough to encourage them to do more.
The best kids’ art tables are made with high-quality materials and are constructed to be sturdy and durable. They have sufficient storage space for what children need while using the table, so they don’t have to get up all the time. They are designed to be safe and easy to use. There are tables that can seat more than a child at a time, while there are others that are meant for just one kid. A lot of kids’ art tables have smooth surfaces that are made to be easily cleaned, as the combination of kids and paints is a recipe for a mess.
The material, size, and design are the major factors that determine how kids’ art tables are priced. Everybody wants good things; we will buy the most expensive and functional products available if we can. But unfortunately, there aren't enough of the required resources to go around, so we make trade-offs. The high-end art tables cost around $300.
The less expensive variants that are also of great quality and durable cost a little less than $100. There are cheap kids’ art tables, but we found out that they are not guaranteed safe and don’t have certifications to back them up. Such products cannot be trusted to last long or serve their purpose.
The best thing anyone can do for children is to help them express themselves and support their potential. Providing them with an art table is an ideal way to do that, as it allows them to doodle and express their creativity. The following are characteristics of an art table to consider if you plan on getting one:
As you read on, you will have more understanding of how these features affect the performance of the different types of kids’ art table you will come across.
Kids’ art tables are constructed to be sturdy and withstand how children will handle them. The most common materials used for constructing kids’ art tables are wood and plastic. They both offer strength and durability, and can be fashioned with an attractive finish. The edge and corners of kids’ art tables are sanded to be round as a safety precaution, and child-safe plastics are used for building the plastic ones.
These art tables come in different shapes and sizes. There are tables that can accommodate four kids using the table at the same time, while there are others that are meant for only one child at a time. These tables are built to have dimensions that are generic to kids of the recommended age group, so you can be sure your child is comfortable using the table. Most kids’ art tables come with a matching chair, but there are some that let your child sit freely on the floor and doodle away.
Most kids’ art tables are designed to be multipurpose, allowing your child to do several other things with the table if they are not in the "Picasso" mood. Some kids love to eat their meals on the table, and since most of them are easy to clean, spilled food will not be much of a problem. Some other kids write and play with other toys on the table. Whatever the kids want to do on their table, they can. The tables are built for that too.
The design is a huge selling point for an art table, which is why you will find so many designs out there. The design isn’t all about aesthetics; the functionality of a design is what makes a product useful. There are many kids’ art tables that are packed full of features. Some are designed to provide extra safety, with rounded corners and edges, or child-safe paper cutters. Some have storage compartments on almost every side of the table, so kids don't need to get up to get any material they need to draw or paint. There is enough space to store them all within reach. Most art tables have spacious tabletops, and some are designed with chalkboard tabletops, so kids can write directly on them and easily clean them off. There are even some kids’ art tables with built-in lights that provide illumination when the surrounding light is not bright enough.
Most art tables have a smooth surface, not only for a good finish, but to eliminate obstructions during use. There are some tables that have laminated surfaces, which makes them easy to clean. Some others have UV painted surfaces that protect the furniture from spills and can easily be cleaned by wiping with a damp cloth. When shopping for a kids’ art table, be sure to look out for tables with easy-to-clean surfaces, which will help you keep it as good as new for a long time.
