A play gym provides hours of fun for your little one, and will encourage him to reach and grab.

You will need

  • MDF wood offcuts
  • Wood glue
  • Drill
  • 30mm screws
  • Dowelling
  • Sandpaper
  • VOC-free paint
  • Paintbrush
  • MDF cutting list
  • 2 x 40cm long
  • 2 x 50cm long
  • 1 x 60cm-long dowelling

Making the play gym

  • Measure to the middle of the two 40cm pieces.
  • Attach the 50cm pieces diagonally and in the middle of each 40cm piece using wood glue.
  • Reinforce the attachment by drilling a screw through the bottom piece into the diagonal piece.
  • Repeat with the other pieces.
  • Use the dowelling to join these two constructions at the top by first glueing the dowelling to the inside edges, and then drilling a screw through the MDF and into the dowelling.
  • Sandpaper the edges and paint in your chosen colour.
