' the Safe children's room '

Ideas proceeding from which the room is created:

Security of children. A soft life.

Why Safe children's rooms?

My name is Alina Sidorova. I’m mother of four children. And I know, how much difficultly to look about kids. Kids learn the world, arrangement of subject matters, materials and it is necessary to encourage them in these desires! But how many dangers around! And how many job, patience, attention parents put! The project of safe nurseries is created, as a certain respite for parents who are in a constant pursuit of the inquisitive kids. '

From what and as the safe children's room is created.

The basic making rooms are the blocks made from leather and a horsehair.

Why leather and a horsehair?

1 - something similar on sports tatami, but more springs 2 - it is easy to clean (reasonably to wipe a damp cloth)

Blocks - equipotential triangles 50х43x3 have various colors, the figure simulating a grass is made of them, a footpath, mountain, the sky, flowers.

The conditioner and light hide, and it is safe. The conditioner is built in an interval between a main wall and Soft blocks also it is decorated by a quadrangular lattice.

Illumination - luminescent fixtures decorated by six-coal figures from plexiglas of white and yellow colors, simulate clouds and the sun.

Windows are protected by transparent silicone well passing light and having protective character.

All the toys which are being a room, are safe. Dolls, bears, pigs and other - soft toys without an eye and parts.

Padded stools, design, clearly, children's are pertinent.

The play slide, lodge, swing, trampoline are possible.

The part of a room will probably borrow a labyrinth (50 sm in height).

Warm colors - yellow, blue, orange, green, white are used.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »
