The process was simple enough, albeit a bit tedious. We purchased two 2 x 4 foot pieces of plywood, two bags of mid-loft batting, and 2.5 yards of fabric. The most time consuming part was cutting the plywood to fit perfectly on the ledges of the crates. I measured the openings and ripped the plywood down to roughly 12.5 by 15.5 inch rectangles. Listening to the advice of my husband, I used a spare 2 by 4 as a guide to run my circular saw against. This helped me make cut straight lines.
These would also be really great in a playroom at home with little ones. Anything that doubles at storage is great in my book!
Do any of you teachers have similar things in your classroom? I am starting to get excited about getting into school to set-up my classroom. Who is with me on that one? Anybody??
