Maverik Dean is my 9-month-old son and he is ALWAYS needing something to do. I am always on ‘Pinterest.com’ looking for things to do with or for my son.

The site is seriously AMAZING & I suggest for you to go check it out! I will leave a link to my account at the bottom of this page. As I was looking up ideas once I found that one popular thing to do with children was to make a “Busy Board”. What is a busy board? It’s a great way to keep your toddler or baby entertained, learning, and just plain busy! So let’s make one!

You can make your busy board big or small, colorful or not! It’s really all up to what your idea of a perfect busy board is.

The great thing about this busy board is that you can probably find about half of the stuff around your house. If you cant find what you are wanting to use then you can go to the store or even ask your friends & family!

Here are the boards that inspired me on my Pinterest.

First, you need to get an image of the board you are wanting to make, then think of all the items you need to get to make this board. I personally just moved to a new house so my boyfriend had items left over that we didn’t use for our house. Second, you get the items you need. I personally went to Hobby Lobby, Home Depot, Amazon, & Wal-Mart to get the rest of the items that I did not have.

Item list for our Busy Board:

-a square piece of wood & an M shaped piece of wood
-house numbers (because they were the cheapest)
-colorful blocks
-Calculator
-door stopper
-sandpaper
-bells
-fox fur
-cabinet door handle
-keychain rings
-rolling wheel
-key locks
-couple different door latches/locks
-night light bulb

 

Why did I choose some of these items?

-I chose some of these items for feeling, babies love to feel new things
the locks & latches are for the open & close concept, learning to twist things, put keys in holes, etc.
-bells and door stopper are for noise
-I put numbers on the side so he can learn his numbers & also be able to learn sign language at the same time! (I’m sure this is a little advanced but I thought it was neat)
-I chose the color blue because that is the main color in my sons’ room

The third thing I did was to round up all these items and lay them on the board to make sure it was where I wanted. I also made sure it would be convenient for Maverik and his abilities. After that, I painted the boards & instead of hammering & screwing the screws I decided to hot glue everything because it was simpler. ( I was also working on this project at night when Maverik was sleeping so I didn’t want to make a lot of noise)

Finally, the project is done & Maverik is ready to play!

Steps:
1. Get an image of your perfect busy board you want to create.
2. Collect all the items for your busy board.
3. Put your busy board together to make sure its what you want (do not actually attach everything yet)
4. Attach everything to your busy board the way you’d like.
5. Set your busy board where you’d like your little one to play with it & watch your little one play away!

  1. Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: http://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I wanted to subscribe to your newsletter, but I couldn’t find it. Do you have it?

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    P.S.
    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    Regards
    Jan Zac

    • Hello!
      I really enjoyed your site! & im thankful you took the time to check out mine.
      for many years i have always used all social media accounts to sell products from companies, so thats how i got a lot of my followers. recently i started to blog, well than i became an amazon associate and i am about to be affiliated with google, but i had to make my blog “legal” so im in the middle of transferring everything over to my legal blog “BossPrincess101”, which is what you see.
      I will get an email account set up tomorrow and look into the newsletter stuff and i will keep you updated on that! i will join yours as well as soon as i make the email.
      i am totally down with putting each others sites on each others, i think that is such an amazing idea!
      my advice for followers and to not have to pay, make a business pinterest account “pinterest.com” i might have to send you an email inviting you, if i do let me know and i will do that for you. luckily i joined pinterest in high school and got a good reputation back than, so its really helping me out with my new stuff now. Also you need to find blog groups on facebook. like i am apart of 3 mom blog groups and there is about 200 of us on each group, and every day except Sundays we have about 2-3 assignments to do. so example one assignment would be to “post a link to a specific tweet you want help promoting, and than re tweet everyone else’s tweet, we have 24 hours to complete that”. ive been trying to find other groups that are similar and not necessarily “mommy groups” but haven’t had the best of luck. i have found a couple smaller groups of just random people posting their blogs (for some reason this works for me because everyone likes my stuff).
      so far that is how I’ve gotten to where i am. eventually once i have a big enough crowd i will write a blog and share how i have done everything in detailed but for now love this post! :)im trying to get more followers. 🙂
      I would love to post your page everywhere and help you out though! i can do that in the next few days!

      -Veronica 🙂 xoxo
