- Just like adults, kids need a dedicated place where they can tackle important tasks like using Play-Doh, solving puzzles, having a snack, and doing homework.
- The MUtable All-In-One Children's Play Table is our top pick for the best kids' table because its many inserts and accessories make it perfect for playtime, mealtime, and all other times.
- Plus, it can grow and adapt as your kids age.
Who ever said sitting at the kids' table had to be viewed in a pejorative sense? In fact, maybe it's time to shift the whole paradigm and start seeing kids' tables as the place to be. After all, you enjoy sitting at your nice big adult table while you eat, work, or read the paper, right?When your kids have a size- and design-appropriate table where they can work on an art project, enjoy a meal, complete a homework assignment, or just hang out with siblings or friends, they will make the best use of their time and will enjoy activities much more than they would while perched on a booster seat or relegated to the floor.
Today we're talking about tables that can genuinely be used as, y'know, tables. You won't find water tables or sand tables here, in other words, but rather solid, reliable pieces of furniture that are suitable for years of use during meals, for everyday art and play sessions, and for elementary school homework, too.
Whether you're looking for a table that will perch in the corner of a playroom or bedroom or one that will be on prominent display in highly trafficked areas of your home, you'll surely find a suitable choice on this list. There are kids' tables from across the price spectrum and even a great outdoor option.
Keep in mind that, if your household is anything like mine, there may well be more than one diminutive table in your future. While at first putting multiple kids' tables in multiple rooms in the house might sound like it will clutter the place up, actually I've found the opposite can be true. When you dedicate one piece of furniture as the go-to place for art and another the selected snack spot, for example, you actually minimize the mess and keep stuff where it belongs.
