I knew that I wanted to do a fun project involving the tops from baby wipes containers ever since I saw this post from I Can Teach My Child on Pinterest. I started saving wipes lids and was inspired to create this Peek-a-Boo Sensory Board while wandering the aisles at Home Depot. I picked out flooring samples for both indoor and outdoor carpet, as well as linoleum. When I got home I flipped the samples over and traced the outline of the inside of the wipes lids on the backs of the samples with a Sharpie. I cut along the outline so they fit perfectly inside! I grabbed a partial piece of foam board and moved the wipes lids around until I was happy with the layout. Then I simply grabbed my trusty hot glue gun and glued the wipes lids to the foam board. Finally, I glued the cut pieces of the flooring samples inside. When I first presented Paige with the Sensory Board I laid it on the floor. She had a great time exploring the textures with both her hands and feet! Later I ended up mounting it to the wall with some Command strips for a little change. Paige has really enjoyed exploring this sensory board. It’s a great way for her to learn about textures and colors too! I just love a simple (and practically free!) project 🙂
EDITED TO ADD: I have had many people asking about the brand of wipes I used for this project. They are Kirkland wipes found at Costco.
