Like their name implies, lap tables are meant to be used on or over a child’s lap, depending on the model. Some have sides while others are more like a tray. These types of tables are great for kids that love to draw – this way they have a hard, flat surface for creating their art anywhere they go. Some models have a storage area built-in, in which your child can keep pencils, markers, paper, and other art supplies.
I think kids would like the color of the model below, and I like how it opens up:
