To encourage and support children independence, it’s important that, as parents, we set up a safe environment and provide the necessary tools for the children to succeed.
Imagine how difficult life must be for your children as they learn to do things themselves, but everything is too tall or too big for them. This is why having a child-sized table and chair set is crucial to our children’s development into independent adults. A kid’s table and chair set offers a number of benefits.
Benefits of Children’s Tables and Chairs
There are lots of kids tables and chairs sets available in most online stores, and, therefore, you should be able to pick the right one for your child. But before you get a set for your toddler, let’s look at some of the benefits of having a kid’s table and chair set.
Perfect for creativity
If your child has already started school or is just learning to scribble a few things on paper, they’ll need some space for their creative time, or better still, for them to practice drawing. Getting them a small table that’s favourable to their height will help them do this with so much ease. As they do the scribbling and drawing they get to learn a lot more on their own.
Teaches practical life skill and table manners
Children can help set the table before mealtime and clear and clean the table afterward. They even take their time to carefully check everything to ensure they have removed all the dirty spots from the table and chairs.
Allows for quiet time
The kid’s table is not used for just mealtimes. It can be used for doing arts and crafts, playing with playdough, practicing writing skills, reading, and much more. Instead of running around like cave people and destroying the house, your children can sit down at the table and do some quiet activities. As a result, mommy can stay sane most days.
Promotes good posture and comfort
Imagine having to sit with your legs dangling all the time while eating. I know I wouldn’t feel comfortable there! Kids can sit in the small chairs with their feet on the floor and their backs against the chair (in place of a booster chair, which provides no back support). Additionally, the children can adjust their distance away from the table to avoid straining their shoulders or backs while attempting to reach their food.
The children are able to sit on and get off the chairs on their own. Rather than always needing an adult to help them sit in the high chair or booster for mealtime or playtime, they can now decide when and what to eat or do on their own since they have a place where they can sit and eat or play.
Encourages healthy sibling interaction
The kids are able to sit and play together on the same table with chairs, but each has their own space to call their own. A small table levels the playing field rather than the older sibling sitting in a booster seat at the adult table and the younger sibling crying because she can’t see what he is doing from the ground.
