Wrong! You see, I'm not a particularly handy person. Sure, I took woodworking class in high school! Sure, I passed... by the skin of my teeth!
Thank goodness there's some one in my life who is A) good with tools and B) willing to help me use them: my wonderful partner, Alden! He documented the process to make me look like a real tool-wielding Mrs. Fix-It, but the truth is, he did a ton of work himself!
So far, we've got a variety of features: locks and light switches on one side, cookie-sheet magnet board on the other! What would you like to see us add? Email me at email@example.com with your suggestions!
The kids have been using it non-stop, sometimes 5 0r 6 at a time! It's become a robot-charging station, a rocket ship, and a superhero hangout. It's so rewarding to see the kids enjoying the board!
When I first discovered latch/busy/activity/Montessori boards, I. Was. So. Excited! Here was something that could occupy the busiest of hands, help develop fine motor and problem-solving skills, and was customizable to suit the wants and needs of my little friends at Buddings! It couldn't be that hard to build one, right?
