5 Reasons to Invest in an Activity Table

5 Reasons to Invest in an Activity Table

“Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make him learn things, but by the endeavor always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence.” - Maria Montessori

Our world is fast changing, our children are in for some very exciting times ahead -- and as parents we want to prepare and equip them intellectually, emotionally, holistically to adapt to the future. Education and learning begin at home. Why not make it fun and engaging? For kids as well as for parents! :-)

Activity tables for kids can be a great tool for promoting learning and development in young children. They’re a fun and engaging way for kids to learn and grow -- and they help strengthen the parent-child bond.

A good activity table will have a combination of educational, fun, and safety features, and also be adjustable, durable, easy to clean and have storage options.

Buying an activity table can be a great investment for several reasons:

Developmental benefits:

An activity table can help promote fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and problem-solving abilities in children.

Fun and engaging:

Kids are practically a storehouse of bubbling energy. An activity table is the perfect way to channelize this energy. A good activity table will be able to do this a fun and engaging way. It can be a great way to keep kids entertained and help control the screen time (a constant worry and poser amongst many parents!).


Why should only kids reap the benefits of a good activity table? ;-) It can be a great space-saving solution for you as well, as it can be used for multiple purposes and can be easily folded away when not in use. 



Look for an activity table that is made from sturdy and durable materials that can withstand the wear and tear of daily use by children.


Some activity tables have adjustable height settings, which can be beneficial as your child grows and their needs change.


Make sure the activity table meets safety standards, has no sharp edges, and is stable to prevent tipping over.

Ease of cleaning

Consider an activity table that is easy to clean, as children can be messy and you'll want to be able to wipe it down easily.


Look for an activity table that has a design that is attractive and appealing to children. Some tables come in fun colours and designs that will make them more appealing to kids and encourage them to use it.


Some activity tables come with built-in storage options, such as drawers or shelves, which can be helpful for keeping toys, art supplies, and other items organized.


If you have limited space, consider an activity table that can be easily folded and stored away when not in use.

All in all, there are many reasons to buy a good quality, durable and child-friendly activity table for your little one(s). The most important of them all is spending quality time with your children and strengthening your family bond. 

Doing activities together can also help open up lines of communication between parents and children, allowing for more open and honest conversations. 

Children often learn by example, so when parents participate in activities with their children, they are setting a positive example of how to lead an active and healthy lifestyle.

Engaging in fun activities with family members can help create long-lasting memories that children will cherish for years to come.
