Learn how to build an outdoor activity table, using scrap materials from around the house. In all this project took approximately and 1 hour.

Step 1: Materials

First you need to assemble your materials. For this project I had, a daughter wanting to make mud on the deck, 4 - 16" 4x4s and a 2' x 4' sheet of plywood, leftover from an earlier project.

1. Restless child looking for something to do
2. 4 (4 x 4) blocks
3. 1 Sheet of plywood
4. Deck screws
5. Drill
6. Counter sink + deck screw bit
7. Sander


Speed Square (This made making the corner lines easy)

Great Instructable - the picture proves it can stand up to punishment!&nbsp; :-)<br />
Your girl is ADORABLE!!! She belongs on TV. She brought me a smile today.
How about rounding the corners?
is there an instructable on how to make your kids happier to have their picture taken?
Nice! Definitely add a few coats of sealant to protect the table from the rain. That wood will last less than a season if exposed to the elements!
I like it...very simple and inexpensive way to have an outdoor table...<br/>now if you made one of those sand and water tables w/a lid that would be super snazzy =)<br/>
very simple!
Since it's plywood, you should definitely seal it with some kind of a paint or varnish. Plywood likes to warp in moisture. Other than that, good job!
