Activity Tables

Remember spreading out construction paper, scissors, and glue to create your favorite holiday project? Activity tables give your students enough space to spread out, work creatively, and participate in group activities without being hindered. These tables should be versatile; able to accommodate a variety of activities including writing, drawing, cutting, and painting.

With this in mind, it is important to know what you want in terms of size, shape, legs, table top and glides. Activity tables are offered in a variety of shapes including round, rectangular, and trapezoid-shaped. Specialty tables come in horseshoe, kidney, and flower shapes, bringing an element of fun and whimsy to any classroom. Adjustable legs are an important feature of activity tables, making it easy to adjust the desk for maximum comfort and accessibility. Steel legs make for a strong desk that can withstand extremely heavy weight and pressure. Choose between particle board, laminate, and plastic tops for easy cleanup and durability. Glides keep a high-use table from growing wobbly over time. Built to withstand long-term use, glides can add years of use to your activity tables. Browse the variety of student activity tables online and think of all the fun projects you and your students can create.
