Polly's good idea:
When I do crafts with my children (painting, playdough, etc.), I have them sit at the table with a cafeteria tray. The edges help items from falling onto the table or floor and it is easy to clean.
[Also good when kids are drawing with markers — the paper and markers fit on the tray, the table is protected from ink, and the markers don't roll onto the floor. Good for kids who prefer to draw on the floor, too, especially if you have carpet. — Ed.]
