homemade DIY indoor jungle gym - complete with monkey bars.Great for working on standing up and hand eye coordination. Not to mention, it keeps kids entertained on rainy days and will really come in handy during winter.
What a wonderful idea that you can continue to use as your child progresses to school. As a smart person commented, as your child reaches high school, they could be holding a chalk board with the grade written on it
I turned a coffee table into a chalkboard canvas for my toddler
DIY busy board full of switches, latches, and doo-dads for babies and toddlers to manipulate. This is great for fine motor skills. It is also a hazard for giving escapee toddlers the skills they need to get out unsupervised.
My parents never took enough pictures of us! Another great idea: Take a picture of the first and last day of school to see how much they change over the year - this would make a really cute photo book when they graduate high school.
