Baby sensory board {DIY}

A baby sensory board is a fun, hands-on activity to watch your baby learn and explore the sense of touch and tactile differences!

DIY Baby Sensory Board - Baby Play - Wildflower Ramblings

I found a some hard and soft items and hot-glued them to some cardboard — I had to find white cardboard because the brown just wasn’t as pretty.  I tried to stick with “girly” too because May doesn’t have enough pink and girly things in the house : ).

Ensure that you are with your baby at all times as some of these items are choke hazards, and though they are glued on, babies can work miracles!

I assembled my supplies.


And got to gluing!


And here she is with her boards!  She is very serious!


She loves them, but again, I am always with her while she is playing, when they are not, they are set out of her reach!
