The Little Helper Tower

This is a very ingenious “do-it-yourself” project. If you are scared that your child will try to climb up counters or tables and hurt himself or herself in the process, this little helper tower can give you the peace of mind that you want and provide a safe environment for your kid. This tower is perfect for your imaginative kid. Its height can also be adjusted, depending on your kid’s needs, size and age. You will work with the following supplies: screws, wood glue, finishing supplies, paint, a measuring tape, a pencil, a square, hearing protection, a drill, a circular saw, a jigsaw, a Kreg Jig, sander, a level and safety glasses. The dimensions of the little helper tower in the image are the following: the platform measures 15” x 18”, the arches need to be 7 ½” wide and 2 ½” high. The ladder rungs need to be drilled and glue should be applied on their ends. Make two holes with countersunk 2 ½” screws. You can add as many rails as you want but make sure to keep the sides open because your kid will need that space to get in and out the little helper tower. If you want to fold the tower easier, try replacing the screws with hinges. You’ll be able to finish the tower in a day and you won’t get to spend a fortune on materials; it’s a cheap and original alternative to other “helpers” you find in shops. Make sure to choose bright colors when you pick the paint or try using colors that your kids loves, to make the tower even more dreamy for your girl or boy.
