Playroom Inspiration: DIY Busy Board

This sensory busy board is part of a playroom made for an almost toddler that was put together on a budget. It looks beautiful and is a great lesson in re-purposing everyday items for play.

So many sensory activity stations go horizontal, but taking it to the wall conserves floor space and puts the action squarely within a toddler's gaze and reach. The only "toy" featured on the sensory board is a bead maze (similar to the IKEA MULA bead roller coaster, $7.99). Beyond that, knobs, knockers, switches, wheels and other quotidian objects take on a new life. A DIY sensory board would be an excellent holiday gift, and parents can add features over time.
