I absolutely love the kids sink extenders from awesome kids company Peachy Co - and completely fell in love with the idea of making the bathroom sink a whole lot more kids friendly. I've been reading a lot about the rather hip Montessori approach for kids lately and one important part of it is making kids feel empowered , and some folks even have "kids sinks" …. that is out of my budget.. so a sink extender is a great way to do that on the cheap.
I'm excited that in the next few weeks I'll be hosting a giveaway for an Aqueduck kids sink extender – but in the mean time – here's how I fashioned my own sink extender with an old shampoo bottle and some scissors. I just love easy, cheap crafts that don't require any expense or expertise
Old Shampoo Bottle
Cut the spout end of bottle off
Cut out the middle of one side of the bottle
Cut out the end of the bottle and cut the top part of bottle as shown in picture below.
Use a rubber band, glue or duct tape to fit the top part of the bottle to fit the sink's faucet. I found that duct tape worked best.
Turn on water and enjoy your new kids sink / faucet extender!
