Picture of Children's Outdoor Play Table
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

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...
now if you made one of those sand and water tables w/a lid that would be super snazzy =)

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!
