Store bought play tables can be quite expensive, and bulky to store. Nicole Carney from Busy Bugs came up with a design for a sensory table that allows it to be broken down and stored away when not in use. Also, the removable tub allows you to keep a few separate bins on hand, one for water, another for sand or rice, or whatever materials you like really. And swapping them out is a cinch.
This is a fantastic project that can be build in an afternoon, and only requires the use of a few simple hand tools. This would be a great addition to a primary teacher’s classroom, since it is also quite cheap to make, compared to the store bought type.
