My kindergarten used our geo board to practice building shapes. With all the golf tees in their holes she used different colored rubberbands to make the shapes we were reviewing in homeschool.

How to Make a Geoboard

Now I know you are all going to be shocked, but I don’t actually have step-by-step pictures of how we made it! {gasp!} I wasn’t actually sure if it would work, but it did and works great.
We used a leftover board from when we built our chicken coop. The board is 2” thick. We used a drill to make holes 5 week and 5 wide. How big of holes you need will depend on what tees you get.  (We bought the multi colored Golf Tee 3 1/4″ 75 Pack)

We liked the natural wood, but you could always spray paint your wood if you like. If you don’t have any wood on hand check with home depot that cuts wood for people in their store – they often times have scraps leftover they are willing to share.

Geoboard diy

  1. Using a GeoBoard to learn about Sizes – We made a small square, then a bigger one, and a bigger one, and the biggest square of all.
  2. Using a GeoBoard to Make Letter – If you have a Kindergartner or older who is ready for a challenge you can use the Geobard to make alphabet letters.
  3. Using a GeoBoard to Toddler fine Motor Skills – My toddler used the Geo board to work on her fine motor skills. First she put all the pegs in the small holes. Then she made the marbles balance on the pegs. (marbles are small and require supervision) I also used it to practice colors by having her put the marbles on all the yellow pegs.
