Busy Board: DIY Ideas To Keep Your Busy Toddler... Busy

These fabulous toys will keep your kids busy for at least five minutes! (A miracle, we know.)

When a Reddit post of a busy board went viral this week, we couldn't help but think: Doesn't everyone know about these awesome DIY toys?

Apparently not! (Or perhaps not everyone is as Pinterest-obsessed as we are.) So we rounded up 20 board ideas (and their instructions) from super talented moms and dads. We love these toys because they help kids with fine-motor skills and sensory play while giving us a few minutes of peace and quiet.

We hope your little ones love these as much as we do!
