When I came across this DIY geoboard, I just knew that I had to make one, especially since we have a lot of scrap pieces of wood in our garage. I kept putting it off for months, but finally got around to making a geoboard of our own a couple of weeks ago. And it cost me only $1 to make.

To make your own, you need only a few simple materials:
- A scrap piece of wood - Mine is a piece of a deck board that's about a foot long. Yeah, more upcycling!
- Clear push pins - I purchased a container of 100 push pins from the dollar store for $1, but I did not use them all.
- Rubber bands - You can start collecting them, but I purchased a bag of 1000 from the dollar store for $1 and used about 20. So basically it cost me a couple of pennies.
That's it. Then it's ready for exploring math concepts and developing fine motor skills during play time!
