Update: April 14th, 2018: My 10 month old son now gets to enjoy his sister's water table. My husband my make me paint it blue though lol.
What you need:
- PVC pipe (four 5ft poles)
- 4 PVC caps
- 8 PVC T connectors
- 4 PVC corner connectors
- PVC pipe cutters
- 1 can of spray paint
- 1 storage bin (should be long and rather shallow)
- My husband based the dimensions of the table around the actual storage bin. He did point out that the printed dimensions of the bin should not be used as they were not accurate. So you will need to measure the bin yourself in order to plan for the rest of table. It is also good to take into consideration how tall the child or children you are making the table for are.
- Using a sharpie mark the PVC pipes based on the measurements you took and then cut out the necessary pieces. Besides the 4 pieces of pipe to make the top frame, the rest of the pieces will be rather short and with therefore require connectors to join them together,
- Use the corner connectors at the top of the table (one in each corner), 1 T connector below each corner connector, 4 T connectors underneath where the storage bin will go, and 1 cap on the bottom of each leg of the table.
- Spray paint the table outside and allow adequate time for it to dry.
- Fill up the storage bin with water, sand, or any other sensory item and then watch your little one have a BLAST!
