There’s something magical about watching a young child create something totally their own. Whether it’s a freehand drawing, a painting, or even a block tower, I’m always a little thrilled seeing the sorts of things that come out of my daughter’s mind. I do my best to give her the tools to make whatever sounds interesting to her — and that includes the right surface (which also saves my dining room table). 

I’ve rounded up nine favorite art tables — perfect for whatever your kids are into.

The Best Kids' Art Table with Storage

Perfect for your budding artists, this table offers everything needed for a variety of creations — and two stools make it easy to share for playdates or sibling time. Store everything in bins or cubbies, and don’t forget about the paper roll. The gorgeous black and light natural wood finish make this a great addition to your playroom or other space.

The Best IKEA Kids' Art Table

Don’t let the simple look of this IKEA table fool you; it’s loaded with features! First off, it’s adjustable to three heights to grow with your child. The top tilts to offer a better angle if needed, and a groove makes sure writing and painting implements stay in place. You can hook up a large roll of paper to make starting a new project a breeze, and you can also add optional storage bins below if you’d like.

The Best Amazon Kids' Art Table

This cute and classy table and chairs set is an excellent place for your busy kid who always wants to switch activities. It features a paper roll (which can also double as extra storage by attaching a basket or cute bucket). There’s storage underneath the main table surface, to keep things tidy, and you can reverse one of the panels for a LEGO-compatible workstation. Two stools tuck neatly under when not in use.

This easy-to-clean laminate tabletop play table is another well-designed, durable piece of furniture from Cubby favorite, Oeuf. It’s even better if you match it with the animal-shaped bear or rabbit chairs, which are on sale right now!

West Elm

This chic art table is like a mini version of the mid-century dining table of your dreams. Choose a warm wood or a white finish and complete with coordinating chairs or something fun and eclectic. Store art supplies in the large drawer and just add paper to the built-in roll to set the artistic wheels in motion.

This stunning table and chair set is a wonderful hub for all the art your child could desire to make. The tabletop is finished with dry erase marker-friendly paint — so your child can draw on paper, or right on top of the table. It comes with a reversible skin made for Lego and Duplo construction (one on each side) and the handy center bag serves as a catch-all for everything at the end of a busy arts and crafts day.

Modern Nursery

Make a statement with this stunning chalkboard table — perfect for early days through more elaborate masterpieces. Center storage keeps all your chalk or other art supplies together.

Choose from three colorways for this fun table (including this pop of ocean blue). Attach the included paper roll, fill the cubbies under the stain-resistant main surface with art supplies, and watch the magic happen.

Melissa & Doug

Keep everything you need for arts and crafts in one place (and out of sight) with this streamlined bright white and natural wood finished table with four bin drawers. The large surface is perfect for spreading out art projects, but would also suit train or block play — whatever creative activity your little one can imagine.
