If you’re looking for a simple way to set up creative provocations that encourage curiosity and imagination, you will love the Creative Table™ Project. These activities won’t take a lot of time to set up, and while your child creates you can step back while they enjoy the process of exploration.
WHAT IS THE CREATIVE TABLE PROJECT?
The Creative Table™ Project invites you to share an image of a creative invitation, prompt, provocation, or set-up.
The creative table set-ups are simple: Clear a table, place the inspiring materials in an inviting arrangement, and invite a child to create.
There’s no right or wrong way about it. While we may have an idea about how the other person will use the materials, it’s ultimately up to the child to determine the outcome.
You can read more here for tips on how to set up these creative table provocations.

I really feel like we haven’t been getting arty nearly enough lately – I definitely blame winter! But as soon as the rain and wind stops, I am going to set up our creative table activities again outside 🙂
There are some lovely simple ideas here Rachelle 🙂
It’s hard to imagine winter while we’re experiencing sandal weather! Funny enough, we seem to be better at creative activities when the weather is poor because we cozy up inside and make, make, make. Thanks for your comment, Kate.
This is such a cool idea! Hopefully, this can keep my kids off the iPad for just a few minutes in a day. 😛
I’m glad to hear that it’s inspiring you, Joanna! Sometimes it’s the daily practice or routine of it that helps kids make the leap.
