In the past week I had a couple of parents ask me where I bought our sensory table. I told them where and the cost ($250). Then I told them how they could make one themselves.
This morning my husband and I went thrift store shopping and I found this small table. It’s about 18 inches tall, perfect for toddlers. At another store I found the white tub.
At home I explained to my husband what I wanted and this is how he made it.
He measured the inside diameter of the bowl first then on the table he found the centre point. Using a pencil on the string he drew the circle.
Next he drilled a hole through the top then used a jigsaw to cut out the circle.
It’s a very sturdy table, as you can see there are two layers and two circles. The bowl fits almost perfect. It was a bit loose so he screwed pieces of padding to make it snug.
Our new table cost $10.25, not including the cost of the cake I made
as a thank you for my husband’s work.
