Unless you kids are using hammers and saws on the table I would go with one of the Poly floor finishes, either water base (easier to use) or oil. They are quite hard and resistant to scratches. Put on at least 3 coats and more if desired. be sure to sand lightly between coats with 320 or 400 sandpaper or 0000 steel wool. Choose the gloss to suit your own needs. Hi gloss can be dulled down with 0000 steel wool and some paste wax is necessary.
