DIY Kid’s Step Stool
“My kids have been using a 12″ plastic stool from IKEA to boost them high enough to wash their hands in the bathroom. This stool works great for the 5 year old, but it’s too short for the 2 year old and she can’t reach the faucet. I measured a good height for her, and made the new stool 18″ tall. This is a great height for her, and the 5 year old can stand on the lower stair and reach comfortably.”
Here is a DIY tutorial for a step stool made from one board that can either grow with your kiddo or accommodate kids of different heights and ages. And it looks so much better than a cheap piece of plastic. And, it doesn’t cost much to make since it’s just one board, some screws, wood glue, and sand paper. Of course if you want to stain or paint it, that could add a little bit extra to the project cost.
