Kids' Paper Scroll

If your children are budding artists, they probably enjoy pursuing projects independently. Encourage your children's creative aspirations by providing them with small, portable worktables of their own. Equip the tables with conveniently mounted rolls of paper, and no matter where they are, your kids can portray their surroundings.
