This Christmas we struggled with ideas on what to get Amelia as a gift. She was only 4 1/2 months old, so there wasn’t anything she needed or wanted. I came across this idea for a Sensory Board from someone else and searched them on Pinterest. I had no idea how popular they were! When you search for them, so many different types popped up! I was so excited to do this for Amelia. It was inexpensive and creative.
We purchased everything from Menards, besides a few items we purchased at Michaels. Here is what we used for our sensory board:
- You need a board – Ours is 2 feet by 2 feet. You can get much larger or smaller. We thought this would be the perfect size to pull out and store away when it is not being used.
- Spray paint – I decided to spray paint ours pink. There are a lot of people who just leave it the natural wood color also. It’s whatever YOU want to do!
- Chain door guard
- 3 inch spring door stop
- Switch & plate
- Red paracord bracelet
- 3 carabeeners, different colors
- 3 carpet samples
- Door chain
- Sash lift
- Spiky wood chain – Michaels
- Colored glass rocks – Michaels
- Super Glue
- Wood Glue
- Screws & Drill
- Wooden letters & numbers – Michaels
- Various paints for letters & numbers – Michaels
- Wooden square sample
Total at Michaels – $25.86
Total at Menards – $38.50
Total = $64.36
I love how this turned out. I also love that you can do anything to create it your own. Travis and I enjoyed creating this together too!
