When my husband and I lived in Mexico working for a children’s ministry, we learned this great trick of covering all work surfaces in plastic covering! In spanish, it’s called hule (pronounced “oo-lay”). We still call it hule–Don’t forget to put the hule on! I use the plastic covering for messy crafts in the kitchen, and then I just fold it up and put it in a basement cabinet when we’re done. Occasionally I let it air out. When it gets too messy it’s time to buy a new one. I even leave one on our dining table over the table cloth, so I can just wipe up the plastic when we’re done eating. I only take the plastic off for royal company.
