- Cute little table
- 4-6 crayons
- Electrical tape
- Piece of cardboard
I cut the cardboard so it would fit on top of the table. Then I taped it down with electrical tape on each side. I could have done this in a cuter way but I didn't think of it until after the first two pieces of tape were laid. Oops.
I then taped the string to the crayons and cut them to the appropriate length. The strings are attached underneath the table at a length which makes it easy for Renae to color with them from any side of the table.
She is now free to color whenever she wants, without destroying the crayon box, without leaving crayons all over the place and without making a huge mess for her Mama. The downside is that eventually the cardboard box will be filled with pictures. The upside is, Renae is a year and a half old and she doesn't really care. She usually just colors over the same spot anyway.
