As you all know, I built a nice patio in my back yard a couple summers ago.
Now we have a little girl a year and two months old. Here's a picture of her on her first bike ride last weekend:
So when we're hanging out in the backyard, we need to restrain her in a reasonable way. Forcing her to sit on our lap is not an option. Saw this for 70 bucks at Hope Depot yesterday and thought seriously about buying it:
We decided against it because it seemed like a lot of money for a few hunks of plastic. Then I got to thinking. For $20 they sell 4 ft x 8 ft sheets of lattice like this:
What if I cut it into two 2 ft x 8 ft pieces and zip-tied them together? I'll bend them into a circle with a 16 foot circumference. How much bigger or smaller than the play yard would it be? Would I need another sheet to make it big enough?
These are the things I think about.
Found these gems at Menards. 3 will be perfect I think and it'll save me about $30!
