For those of you who have spent thousands on luxury furniture and your kids can’t sit comfortably on them yet, you might want to consider making them these cool toddler’s footrest from PVC pipes. This is a great idea since they are plastic and won’t scratch your expensive furniture. (And yes, PVC pipes can be bought rather cheap at your local Home Depot so, win-win situation here for you and your furniture.)
If your kids are like mine, I strongly suggest letting them watch and play with the parts as you build this. Let them help, even if it’s only to learn the names of the parts and hand them to you as you need them. They’ll be super-curious and more eager to give it a try when it’s done.
