Busy Box to keep the first Great Grand-daughter busy a little and maybe even teach her a few things. Frame is made with 1.5 inch x 1.5 inch pine. .5 inch birch plywood set into rabbet so no exposed edges. Lots of doo-hickies and thing-a-ma-bobs for her to explore. Tap light and COB LED switch light! Shoe tying, bike bell, knobs, and spinner thingies, OH MY! Sheet metal on top for magnetic letters. 18 inches square total and plenty stable enough for a sitting stool or step stool when needed.

Those of us with grandchildren understand the love that goes into these projects. Your granddaughter is going to spend many hours playing with Grandpa’s play box. She will love every minute. Wonderful Job. Thanks for sharing

That is really a cool project your granddaughter. That should keep her busy for awhile. Love the light switch, got one for my grandson.

I have a Grandson on the way and have looked at “Busy Boards” on line but none as good as your “Busy Box” – 5 sides of fun and so much more space to fine all kinds of fun things at the hardware store for him to explore someday. I’m sure your granddaughter will love this and spend many hours learning.
