My parenting motto: If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.
We went to our local hardware store and picked up the cheapest supplies possible to make a “fake” practice outlet. Because the outlet isn’t going to be connected to electricity, we didn’t need any fancy supplies to prevent shocks, etc. IF YOU MAKE THIS DO NOT CONNECT IT TO ELECTRICITY. Baby G loves switches too so we picked up a switch too. Fun!
- Outlet Cover: $1
- Switch: $0.55
- Electrical Outlet: $0.38
- Box for Outlet: $0.79
I’m hoping the baby proofing now PLUS this cool new toy will encourage him to focus on this PLAY outlet so as to avoid him playing with the outlets. Worst case scenario: he’s learned how to appropriately plug in things to the outlet and we plan to correct him if he tries to stick anything inappropriate in it (ie. screw driver).
