Last week we had a big blizzard around here, it kept us all in our houses on Wednesday and Thursday, so it was basically like having a weekend in the middle of the week.Then we went to work Friday and had a weekend again! So having been stuck in the house for two days we got a lot done, then the weekend rolled around and my husband needed a project. I showed him two picture of what I was thinking I wanted for my sensory bucket. I've always wanted a stand for the bucket, if it sits on the table the kids pull it around and fight over its use and it just creates a larger mess than it would if it had its own table.
I've posted about my sensory bucket before. My bucket may look familiar to you because it is a restaurant grade "bus boy" bucket! I got this from a friend after he closed his bar. You can buy them on amazon though; so don't worry they are easy to find!
This is Shaun's own design, he measured my bucket and with just a few screws, a saw and 2 by 4's he was able to make me this table. If you don't have a saw, Lowes or any home improvement store will cut it for you.
He spent less than $15 on the wood and screws. He added the shelf on the bottom to connect the legs and make it more sturdy.
