Heeey Eliea!!  Cheesy Glad to see you! These critter steps make me happy; I like to think that there is a special honor in Animal Heaven or the karmic circle of life for people who create things that help animals move about more freely or safely.  Smiley

Not that it is necessary AT ALL, but it would be fantastic and ridiculous (in the best possible way) to hot-glue some ornate trim on the sides, or maybe paint/draw trompe l'oeil pillars and a palace motif. With little framed rat portraits on the sides. Adding a red velvet carpet (out of wide holiday-season ribbon) is probably not the best thing on surfaces where they could potentially pee...but in the rat palace of my imagination, I still like the idea.  Cheesy

I totally wanted to cover it with wooden printed contact paper, but since my measurments wound up off that hasn't happened yet. Eventually though I SOOO want to.
I'd also love to add a decorative "railing" but then they could only access from one side and that's kind of a pain. So haven't fully thought that out yet. Wink

So My 5 male rats are super spoiled. Best part of moving is I have lots of cardboard to make them stuff with.

This box the kids had played with after unpacking and it was SO beat up. So I upcycled it.

My Double Critter Nation is wonderful and I LOVE it. But I needed an easy way for my boys to get in and out on thier own.

So with some rough sketching and lots of packing tape I made a set of stairs for my boys. They use them when they play in my craft space. to go into the cage to go potty, get a drink, or eat a snack. Sometimes to take a nap and then play some more. Wink

Proof they do know how it works. lol Wink
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / "P.L.A.Y" room wall art on: December 28, 2018 05:51:08 PM
Our family moved to another state and just bought a house. We're on a budget so decor is slow. I've been scouring pinterest and google for ideas.
I found a super blurry photo on google and fell in love. Had to be creative because of how blurry it was being able to figure out what it was made from. But
I finally finished and am so HAPPY with how it turned out.

I used construction paper for the P, and had my son donate a few cars to the cause. I mostly used elmers glue on this one and a tiny bit of hot glue for the cars.

The L is all crayons and hot glue. I lined these up on a ruler but discovered that apparently the wrappers aren't in the same place on each crayon so they look more crooked than they are. On the wall though it's not noticeable.

A stumped me due to the inspo photo being so blurry. A friend suggested puzzle peices. I used some math to figure out where I wanted the edges to be. Drew in pencil, and then filled in the majority with peices of a 100 peice dollar store puzzle. then filled in gaps with peices from a colorful 500 peice dollar store puzzle. I did use mostly edge peices around the edges. Wink

Lastly for L it's pom poms and pipe cleaners from my stash.

And here's my inspo photo:

which came from google.

Hope you like!

I think that would work.
You could also safety pin items to your table cloth, (from the front) Or dress some dolls up if you have smaller sizes.

I've made 18 of these so far for DD and she's potty training! They are the only pattern that has fit my tiny nearly 2 year old DD. Thank you for posting them and making me think of EC years before my little girl as even a thought!

Bless you! I have been hunting for literally MONTHS trying to find a cloth trainer that will hold little pees for at home when we EC. My daughter is nearly 11 months old but small for her age. (16lbs wearing 6-9 month sized clothing.)
I've printed your pattern and plan to whip some up as soon as I can.

Thank you SO SO SO much!
