I'm excited about this conversation board that I made for Persephone's "room." My mother-in-law bought me the board and I painted it black, sanding down the edges to give it a distressed look. For the magnets I hot glued some painted knobs and some antique buttons onto magnetic disks. We've hung the board about Persy's changing table and I plan on using it to talk about different items in the collage and also to sign about the items. (I've been doing sign language with Persy for a couple of weeks and even though she can't sign back, she does focus on my hands.) The pictures are a mix of family photos, gospel pictures, and random items, (like a postcard of an elephant standing on his head.) I'll change them every couple of weeks so we have something new to look at and talk about.
