I made these sweet little lapdesks for Taylor Joy and one of her friends. They were completely simple and easy to make.
1. First, Michael's carries these and often puts them on sale. I think I got these for $5 each.
2. Then, grab some cute coordinating scrapbook paper and stickers that are flat (no 3D) and some Sharpies.
3. Get creative writing the name and placing all your decorations on the lapdesk.
4. Go to town with Modge Podge. I used matte and sponged it on so it wouldn't get that streaky look to it.
Makes a great gift for someone else or for your own children. Taylor loves to use it around the house and it keeps her from having to sit at the table to color or use her markers. Beckett is actually past the point of eating crayons and is beginning to enjoy coloring so I may have to make one for him next.
Having your kids decorate their own isn't a bad idea if they are older. Then, they can take pride in what they have made and get to creating more fun stuff on it!
