Do you ever find a product that is so cool that you ask yourself, “Why didn’t I think of that?”
The Coloring Table has these fabric tablecloths with a durable laminate backing meant to be colored on with fabric markers or washable markers. Our table has been the gathering spot for all the neighbor girls. My 17 year old son has even taken part. Honestly, one of the best items I’ve bought in a very long time!
Tablecloths start at $35 (markers included) or you can buy by the yard too starting at $16. What a great idea for birthday parties, gifts, family get togethers, even for Father’s Day as a great activity for the whole family! We have the Food Fun tablecloth, but they also offer the “Frame Fun” design on the website as a limited time offer.

I put it out on the table for Ava last night when she got home from gymnastics. Her first response…”COOOOOOOL!” She ate and colored and colored and ate. I can’t wait to get her friends over as well to help in her masterpiece!
There are so many more amazing things about this company beyond just the product. A native Texan, Megan Dove is a genuine “mom-trepreneur, ” who developed this product. It just launched online in April.
In February 2014, she was hosting her dad’s 60th birthday party and wanted a tablecloth they could all color on, sign, and give to him as a keepsake. After not having finding this in her local stores, she went to order online. When she couldn’t find exactly what she had in mind, she was encouraged to create it for herself.
The fabric is entirely American made. The most fabulous part of the production process is that it is cut and sewn at a vocational industrial service warehouse that employs persons with disabilities. The company is very inspiring (and Megan spends lots of time there!).
The fabric is one-of-a-kind because of it’s special finish, whimsical designs, and unique backing. They did lots of testing on different kinds of fabric and realized that there is NO fabric that can guarantee marker wont bleed through. Megan’s family teases that their three-year-old was the best product tester possible for this. That’s when they came up with the solution to marry the fabric with the unique laminate backing. The color will stay on the front and we guarantee it wont bleed through to damage your table.
*The tablecloth is special because it can be used with permanent fabric marker as a keepsake or with washable markers and crayons for multiple uses.
* The tablecloth is machine washable and wrinkle-free. (It’s seriously amazing! 🙂 )
* This tablecloth can be left on the table for an easy come-and-go activity (with easy set up and no clean up), at a party, or for any creative, out of the box use!
* One of our biggest pieces of feedback so far is that this tablecloth is amazing for children with special needs. It has become physical therapy and speech therapy for many children.
This goes in “My Favorite Things” category. No matter what your age, we all love to color and I love their tagline, “Color in the lines and think outside the box.”
