    I'm looking for ideas to keep the kids busy at the table when others have finished their art/project for the day. I don't want to let them go into the "areas" of the room because it is just another mess to clean up before we go outside to play. Ideas besides shaving cream and play dough? Something to keep about 8 of them occupied at the table...not coloring pages.

    What about sorting activities, tossing bean bags into a bucket, walking the line (colored tape on floor ~ GREAT for balance), manipulatives & an activity, or "folding laundry"?
