Many modern cribs are convertible to toddler beds and we're glad of it. But if yours doesn't or if you need to buy an extra conversion kit, consider this super easy DIY crib conversion. What? You don't see it? Look closer...The crib on the left in the photo has 2 of the vertical slats removed. This leaves a perfectly-sized opening for a toddler to climb in and out of bed with the added benefit of the remaining slats to keep her from falling. It doesn't get any cheaper or easier than that!
