Crafty Days

A few nights ago I got together with a fellow working Mom to make a sensory table.

Do you have a sensory table?  I'm sure you've heard of them.  And if, like EG, your little one goes to daycare chances are good that they are playing with one often.

A sensory table is a table that usually includes a bucket or two.  It's designed to hold water, sand, flour, and other messy substances for your child to get a 'sensory' experience.  Here are a few Sensory tables around the webs:

These are over $100!  So, we made our own.  I got together with another South Bay mom, we went to Home Depot and bought what we needed late on a Saturday night.  (yup!  A Saturday night date!)  I'm so glad we did!

The lid makes it totally weather proof!

 The first thing we did with it was play with flour.  A few cups, a sifter, and a big fun mess!

The chair is from Ikea, and is a bit short, but so is the bean...
 I found this online, 30 different sensory activities.  I can't wait to try them all.  I think we might have Sensory Sunday's.  I'll be happy to share as we go along....


  1. Sounds awesome! Can we see pictures of how your table turned out? How much did your DIY table run?

  2. Yes! I thought that I had added some, so I'll re-add tonight :-) It's been a fun project, and I can't wait for her to get more use out of it.
