Child's Table

Making a table for a three-year-old.
Is there any particular Formica or other laminate that she can draw on with crayons or dry marker and can be cleaned up?

Got that right. Butcher paper was what we got for ours. Draw/paint on one, slick on the other side so it didn't soak through.
You didn't have to destroy a tabletop to put it on the fridge door, either.

I go to our local newspaper and purchase what they call 'end rolls' for like $2 each. They are between 32" and 48" wide newsprint and typically 100' long. Perhaps your local paper sells the same?

Doesn't work worth a damn for water paint.

This paint works well. I made a chalkboard for my daughter and used the chalkboard paint. Working great so far :)

I threw together a table with the top coated with this chalkboard paint, and it's been working fine for the last 4-5 months.
