With my work, I spend a lot of time sitting at my desk. I created this workspace for my little girl so she could sit next to me and have a space of her own. She looks so cute "working" - sometimes only in a diaper! The board is a wood frame with a sheet of metal in the center that I purchased at the craft store. I cut strips of patterned paper and modge podged them to the frame. The board works great for hanging pictures or letting her play with magnetic shapes and letters.
