Toddler friends who live next door can now play while locked – after a mom turned part of the garden gate into a PERSPEX window.
Siblings Arlo and Arabella Devonport, three and two, missed their friend Leo Adlington, three, who lives next door.
Their 27-year-old Amy Vickers came up with the idea of making a hole in their communal fence, between their gardens in Wakefield, Yorkshire.
And after Leo’s mother Becca agreed, they went to work and now the three children can play safely together without touching each other.
They can even draw pictures for each other and play zeros and crosses with wipe marks.
Amy, a support worker, who lives with partner Danny, 30, said: “Arlo and Arabella find it hard not to see anyone during the closing.
“It got to the point where they climbed on top of the rabbit cage we have next to the fence so they could look over it in the neighbor’s yard, which is clearly dangerous.
“Instead of climbing up, we decided to make a small window for them so they can stand there and see their friend next door.
“We measured the fence and then ordered a plexiglass panel on eBay, cut the fence panel with a circular saw and drilled holes in each corner so we could screw in some screws to hold it in place.
“At least now the kids can see each other and chat through the window.
“We also bought sweeper markers so they now draw pictures on them and we also taught them to play and cross with them.
“The kids are at the window all day every day when we get home, so I think they love it!”
