So my 2 yr old daughter loves to color and paint with daddy! I've had her in my lap painting with me since she was a few weeks old (I was in the midst of my masters program when she was born). I don't get much done then when I have her in my lap working, and I thought she was getting to the age where she could work a little more independently under my supervision. We found these unfinished table & chairs at Jo-Ann's for $28. I struggled painting them(I used a Poly-Stain..not a fan). So far so good...she loves to set and color at her table and chairs. I may need to get a rug to put under it if I'm going to let her paint! ha ha It's right beside my desk in my studio. Quality time together arting it up!!
