Making

Our coffee table normally has a mat and a bowl on it. But when it becomes Little Jo's 'making table' it gets busy, as does the floor. It would seem Little Jo is an artistic type, rather than a practical type. Myself, as a practical type, has learnt it is pointless tidying the making table until she has left the building. I would not want to crush creativity.

  1. Bonza idea waiting until Little Jo has left the building. Using a kitchen or dining table would be a better option just spread an old bed sheet or something similiar if you don't want the table surface damaged, just a thought :-).

  2. I think it looks great - perfect height and size for her. No wonder she loves it.

  3. Windsmoke, this timber furniture is going to disappear in time and it actually quite resilient.

    KN, she also prepares her cakes there. I suppose you would know all about messy craft projects.

  4. I think it's admirable that you can hold off until Little Jo leaves. I wouldn't be able to stop myself at least sorting the piles and neatening the pencils. I wasn't this bad when my kids were little, they WERE allowed to make messes, but now I couldn't put up with it for too long.

  5. River, I guess because I know it is for a set period, it is ok, but there is no way I could tolerate it on a regular basis. Someone would have to learn how to put her things away.

  6. Does she decorate the making table at all?

  7. Oh yes Fen. Bits of paper are glued to it at times and colour added by texta overuns and spilt glitter.
