They made a rough (but smooth-sanded) looking table for kids to sit around, then some crafty person(s) etched in all sorts of nature related items. Like a leaf and a dandelion. So cute and convenient. The kids simply grab a piece of paper and sit down where they want to create a picture. There was also chair rail/thin book shelves around the corner for the kids to leave their art work for display.
For a home/daycare/school application-I should think this could be done on wood boards if etching a table isn't your thing. This would be great for a Nature Center idea too. I have been to many and have never seen this.
I had to share-this was just too good not to.
