You're new to the skills necessary to complete this project, or maybe you've tried them just once or twice before.

paint and foam customized lap tray

This project is intended for kids age 6+. Customize this lap desk and make it your very own. Add paint and stickers to decorate it and kids will love using it for art, crafts or even homework!
Step 1

Add foam stickers to spell out words, names or simply the alphabet.
TIP: Try to keep the dimensional stickers away from the writing surface to keep that area smooth.

Step 2

Decorate the tray with polka dots! Use the foam stipplers in different sizes to make dots. Just dip it into some paint, then press it on to the surface and twist it slightly as you pull it straight off. Let the paint dry in between applications. You will likely need to add additional coats for good paint coverage.

Step 3

To make the smaller white dots, dip the eraser end of a pencil into white paint and use the same technique as in Step 2.
