Mama got a new computer a few days ago.  So after a quick trip to Ikea for a table and chair, we set up part of my old computer for the twins.  They love pretending to tap away on the keys and hubby has been busy uploading  toddler friendly computer programs … plenty of Mickey Mouse and Thomas The Tank.  Exposed cords was a big problem though. 

But, with a little mod podge, scrapbook paper and paper towel rolls …


A cover was made … well two actually.  One to hang down and the other to go along the floor.

Thanks for the great idea! My toddler is getting into the cords all the time these days, and we’ve been looking for a way to keep her out.I linked to this post in my Things to Write Home About tonight.

This is genius and stylish! Must do for cords under desk. Baby loves to pull them and has turned off computer twice!
