Q: I bought (and love) some IKEA Stuva pieces for my older daughter's room. She has a large window on one wall and it worked out perfectly, by measurements, to fit 3 Stuva desk/ benches underneath, in a row (similar to above photo). My question is, since she's using the benches more as desks, what's the best way to prevent markers, glue, sparkles, you name it, from embedding themselves in the surface? It's important to me to encourage her creativity without chasing after her with sponges, or looking over her shoulder to make sure she 'stays on the paper'. Any ideas? Thanks!

Editor: First (and you probably already do this) buy washable markers/paints/crayons whenever you can! Readers, do you have any Stuva or similar Ikea laminate pieces and have suggestions for cleaning them/keeping them clean?
