This idea is just beautiful, especially as a gift for the grandparents. It has some work involved, though, but I guess it is worth the effort! I guess you could make it somewhat more long-lasting, like covering it with some … Continue reading
This one was discovered by my kids. Here in Greece, most of us have winter carpets and – not that necessary – summer carpets. So, the time came for us to roll out our winter carpets, as annoying as it is to try to get some play dough out of it. We rolled the first one out, but, something – I don’t remember what – happened and we let the second one rolled up on the floor. The minute the kids saw it, the fun began! Up and down, back and forth, crawling, running or balancing, they couldn’t get enough of it!!! It is kind of safe, since it has almost no height and we have it on the other carpet, so even if they should fall – which has not happened yet – it won’t be a hard fall.
It is so funny! You go out and buy all this stuff for them, only to find out that an everyday item could be so much more entertaining. And it is good for gross motor skill and balance skill development, too!!!
So, we let the carpet a few days rolled up, luckily the weather is warm enough until now. And also, the carpets are so old, we don’t mind if they get fed up some more… after all, it’s highly unlikely that they will survive the next few years.
If you have somewhere an old carpet, bring it into the room, tie the ends with some tape so it doesn’t roll open, and let your kids enjoy it!
I didn’t have any place to arrange my children’s books, and I certainly didn’t want to spend Our DIY books shelvesa lot of money to store them. While surfing the web one day, I came across this idea and the … Continue reading
