DIY Sensory Table

Tuesday, September 20, 2022

Okay so I've been dreaming of this table for FOREVER. I asked Nick if he could help me make it and he said yes! However, I probably could have figured it out myself now that I know how to use a drill lol. *This is not a hammer and nails type*

First you need to lay out the bins. I put painters tape around mine to get the measurements. My table is 30x36.

Then head to home depot. We got two pieces of five inch width wood because my bins were five inches tall and I wanted it to have sides that they fit in without it going over the top. I forgot how many inches they were, but we needed two to make the 36x30 work. We also got one piece for the legs that was 92 inches long which would have been perfect for the legs (23 inches), but I insisted it would be too short so we used other wood at home and he had to cut the legs...oops! 

We had wood for the bottom at home, but not enough to cover. So I suggest getting a big piece that can be cut into three or however you need to make the bottom solid. We had it with openings and that was a disaster to the classroom floor. Much easier clean up with a full bottom. I was able to do that myself by getting some more wood, but would have worked doing it from the start too. Then sand it down and coat it if desired. 

The price:
two pieces of wood for the sides: $5 each
piece for the legs: $6
bottom part: we had the wood, but I do think this piece is a little more expensive
bins: $1 each from dollar tree
