This Montessori-style peg board was $1 at a recent children's consignment sale. I snatched it up to use as a table activity for Toddler Girl.

This activity lends itself nicely to the toddler favorite game of 'In and Out'. Put it in. Take it out. Repeat.
This activity can be used to teach (depending on the age and development of the child)--
