Easy DIY Hardware Activity Board for Kids

An idea for the kid who likes to get into anything that is not a toy...so, basically all kids.

You can make this Hardware Activity Board with any items you want.  Just head to your local hardware store and get inspired!  All you need is a board and some doohickies.  If you want to jazz it up, you can even add some decorative duct tape.  This one has a pad lock, velcro, a gate lock, a chain lock, a plastic thing that spins (not even sure what that thing is!), a hinge, and a springy doorstopper.  You gotta have the door stopper...a long time favorite among the toddler crowd.

This board helps with sensory input, developing fine motor and cognitive skills...and it's just plain fun!

  2. Brandon is so cute I can't handle it. This is a great idea; I've been meaning to do it for the boys for a while. I really need to get on it. I love the Batman duct tape you added!
