Having two year old twins also means having 2 cribs. Unfortunately our cribs can not be re-sold as they are “drop side” cribs and have become illegal in Canada (Perhaps in the USA too?) It seems a shame to just throw them away so I have been racking my brain for a way to repurpose our drop side cribs. Fortunately one of the cribs has a bottom drawer – so after a little bit of duct tape along the seams I have repurposed the bottom drawer and made a sand table. This can also be done with an Ikea Aspelund underbed storage drawer (which I just saw in the “as is” department for about half price)
Once I placed the sand table at kid height (on top of an ikea “lack” coffee table) I added some sand and toys and Volia! A new sand table resulting in hours of fun for my children!
