How to make a Geoboard!


Did you know that you can make a geoboard for your kids to play with?

This was a VERY simple craft that took me about 5 minutes! I have been wanting one for a while, but i just haven’t bought one yet. i was standing in the thrift store staring at this board, trying to figure out what to do with it, when VOILA! it came to me :).

Materials needed:

1 package push pins (or about 25)

1 package of rubber bands

1 wooden board (you can probably find at your local thrift store, or any craft store has them)

a hammer

graph paper

Now for the How To:

First step is to paint you board if you want to (mine was already painted for me!)

then lay the graph paper down on the board and mark with little circles where you want your pins to go:

Now, keeping the graph paper on your board, you will lightly hammer the push pins into the circles you have made. Be sure not to hammer all the way down just yet.

Then, starting down the center of a row of pins create a rip in the graph paper and pull off, one row at a time.

Finally, once you have all of your paper off you can hammer in the pins to the board. Make sure to get them in straight!

So, there you have it! An easy peasy geoboard, and made for less than $2!
