All kids LOVE homemade busy boards – hours of entertainment for them…and hours of calm for you.
There’s a reason they’re called “busy boards” – and for busy, tired parents of toddlers, these are the best toys of all.
I found some SUPER great toy deals on that page!
If your kids love toys (grin) and you love saving money on toys they will actually play with – be sure to check out this page.
Let’s take a look at some super creative and unique toddler busy board ideas that we just love. These homemade activity boards are relatively easy for you to make yourself with random household objects you probably already have around your home.
Add some bright color or some personalization, like the bright green board, and you have an AWESOME sensory activity board that your child will love.
I’m sure we can all agree – Parenting sure is easier when your baby, toddler or pre-schooler has fun and educational toys to play with.
These “busy boards” ARE educational – and they’re easy to make at home.
Below are 12+ really awesome sensory board ideas (and ‘latch board’ ideas) and some DIY busy board instructions and tips as well.
