Just lately, I have seen a range of life hacks using a fitted sheet. Like me, most people will have only used a fitted sheet for its real purpose – a bed sheet. So I thought I would share these amazing hacks which could solve your problems and save you some money.
At the Beach

Keep your area sand free at the beach by using a fitted sheet and propping up the sides with bags, toys etc. This makes a great space for your baby or toddler to safely play and eat their lunch without getting a mouthful of sand!
On the Buggy

If you have not got a parasol, you can use a fitted cot sheet around the handle bars to give extra shade. This still allows the air to flow around your baby, but it shades them from the sun.

Use a fitted sheet to keep the water in your paddling pool clean overnight. It will keep out the bugs, grass and whatever else blows in.
A Fort for the kiddies

Keep the kids entertained for hours, indoors or outdoors, by building a fort. You can use a table as a base and drape over sheets with a fitted sheet across the top to keep it all in place and cover up the table.
Has anybody got any other hacks for fitted sheets, please share if you have?

I use this hack when my son wants to play with his blocks or other toy sets with lots of pieces. The blocks don’t get spread out all over the room and cleanup is a breeze!
