This Alphabet themed decoration is also a fun activity — and a great first day of school “getting to know you” group project.
Keep the party moving while you wait for guests to arrive, transition between activities, and as you serve refreshments. An ABC’s coloring table runner is the secret to a stress-free event.
At 4′, 6′, 8′, or 10′ long, you can be sure there’s room for everyone. Kids love to collaborate and share their ideas. Coloring as a group helps even the shyest kids to feel comfortable.
Runners are printed on heavy matte paper — perfect for crayons, markers, colored pencils, paint… Kids love to decorate them with stickers and stamps.
(Photos feature the 6′ runner. Layout changes slightly according to length, but all sizes include the complete alphabet.)
The design, personalization, and bright white finish make it as much a decoration as an activity. When the party is over, roll it up to continue coloring another day, or fold it up for the recycle or compost bin.
For messy applications, such as a cookie or cupcake decorating table, you will LOVE having your runner over a disposable tablecloth. When the party is over, simply fold the runner, and the mess, into your tablecloth for the fastest cleanup ever.
Be sure to take photos of the kids with their artwork to include in your birthday scrapbook!
Frequently Asked Questions:
How fast can I get my table runner?
Please allow two business days for processing. The standard shipping method is USPS Priority which has a 2-3 day transit time within the US. Military mail and other packet services may take longer. Expedited shipping is available. Please let me know the date of your party if you need your runner within seven business days.
Do I need to secure it to the table?
No need to secure it for indoor use. Runners come rolled design-side-out, so they lay nicely and won’t curl back up. If used outdoors, secure your runner with tablecloth clips or tape. If you choose to use tape, know that you cannot remove it without damaging the finish on the paper. Do not try to remove tape.
Do you offer custom sizes?
I can offer custom lengths. Contact me directly for a quote. Runners measure 24″ wide regardless of length.
Can I use this on uneven surfaces?
The thickness of the paper makes it suitable for use on picnic tables and floors – including most carpet.
