We want to make our kids’ living spaces fun and original without breaking the bank or creating waste; finding creative ways to recycle gently-used items or ordinary ones is a great solution. You can make baby’s crib into more of a comfortable–and stimulating–place by transforming an ordinary crib bumper into this colorful toy-pocket bumper. For this crib bumper you can choose any theme you like.

My endlessly creative mom created this one from green cotton fabric, decorated so that it resembles a train; each “car” has a pocket that allows for storage of soft toys, books, etc. It can be used as a crib bumper for an infant, and later can serve as fun, interactive toy storage on the exterior of a playpen, bed, or sofa or attached to a wall for a toddler or young child. You can cover a plain bumper or make one from scratch.
