Make a Geoboard!

3.4 based on 19 ratings

What You Need:

  • Pegboard, 12" x 12"
  • Nuts and Bolts, sized to the pegboard
  • Rubber bands, multi-colored
  • Small container with lid

What You Do:

  1. Help your child push the bolts through the holes in the pegboard, securing them on the back with the nuts. The front of the geoboard is the side with the protruding bolt ends. Each hole should have a bolt in place.
  2. Your geoboard is ready!
  3. Place all the rubber bands in the small container with lid.
  4. Encourage your child to use the rubber bands to create shapes, designs and patterns by stretching the rubber bands around the bolts. She can also overlap the bands to create a variety of complex designs.
  5. When finished, have her take all the rubber bands off of the geoboard and place them back in the container for later.
