With a few dollars of lumber, a couple of tubs, and some simple tools you can make a sensory play table for the toddlers in your life. This is an easy enough project for even a work-away-from-home parent to do on a weekend or for grandparents to crank out en masse for all their young grandchildren.

When we found our lives full of young parents with toddlers my husband wanted to do something to delight the children. Our son’s favorite toy as a toddler had been the plastic sand and water table that occupied him for hours of play. But these are expensive.
