Table Art

I don't know why I didn't think of this sooner! LC has been going through a ton of jumbo-sized drawing pads the last 2 years. She draws on a daily basis.

The roll costs $6 at a local toy shop (retails for $10) and lasts 3 weeks...because we use both sides. It's more comfortable than standing at the easel and easier to draw when the paper is flat on a table. Take a look at some of her creations:
