Ever since my son was a baby, his dad has taken him along on his trips to the hardware store. Ever since he was old enough to walk, he was drawn to one aisle – the latch aisle. He could spend hours opening and closing hinges and latches. But because I don’t want to spend hours at the hardware store, I decided to bring the latches home and make him an activity board.
Want to make your own Latch Activity Board?
- Piece of Lumber
- Paint/Sandpaper (Optional)
- Sand the corners and edges of your board and then paint.
- Attach the latches (they usually come with the necessary hardware).
- Let your child be entertained for hours!
