One of the furnishings in children’s rooms is a special table for games and creativity. It helps kids get comfortable, because the floor is not always comfortable, and the usual table is very large for them. Our tips site will tell and show you what children’s play and art tables are.
What is the first difference between children’s tables for creativity and games from ordinary ones? Sizes! The width and length, diameter of the countertop can be different, depending on the shape: round, square, rectangular. For example, square tables for children may have a countertop measuring 50×50 centimeters, rectangular ones – 70×50 centimeters. But the height directly depends on the age of the child and, accordingly, his height.
Important! Most often, game and art tables are bought for children aged 1.5 to 6 years. Then the grown-up student already needs a full-fledged desk, at which it will be convenient to do homework.
The height of tables for the smallest children starts at 45 centimeters. In the future, for every 10 centimeters of the child’s growth, the height of the table should increase by 5 centimeters, and the height of the chair – by 3 centimeters. As a result, for example, a child 1.1 meters tall needs a table up to 52 centimeters high and a chair 32 centimeters high..
Children’s tables and chairs are made of natural wood, which can be painted in a variety of colors, and plastic. Plastic kits are even more popular today due to their affordable price, low weight, and a variety of models. Traditionally, the set includes a table and two chairs. If friends come to your child, you can buy two more highchairs. You won’t install any more around the table.
All children’s tables can be divided into three types:
- Regular, universal. This is just a miniature version of a simple table with a smooth top. At such a table, you can flip through books, and fold designers, and draw, and sculpt from plasticine. There are no add-ons on the countertop;
- Gaming. For example, special tables for Lego constructors. Or with a chessboard table top, a typewriter track, some bright buttons and other entertaining additions;
- Artistic tables for creativity. They differ from ordinary ones by the presence of a rising board, an easel, so that you can conveniently draw on a vertical surface. In addition, these desks usually have storage space for pencils and markers..
It is convenient when children’s tables additionally have drawers and storage shelves. Such models will cost a little more than ordinary ones, but everything for games and creativity will always be at hand, and there will be more order in the children’s room..
Tables for creativity can be equipped not only with an easel, but also with a roll of drawing paper, as in the photo above. Not a bad option, allowing you to draw without interruption to find a blank sheet.
Important! Square and rectangular tables for children always have rounded corners. This is for the safety of babies.
There are models of children’s tables and chairs that will literally grow with the child, rising in height thanks to special mechanisms. The price, again, will be slightly higher, but the kit will last for several years.
Important! On average, the cost of sets of children’s tables and chairs for games and creativity varies from 3 to 10 thousand rubles. It all depends on the manufacturer, material of manufacture, model features.
