IF YOUR kids haven’t used their trampoline in years, you may be planning to take it to the dump.
But parents are being advised not to throw them away – and transform it into a comfy garden den instead.

Posting on Facebook, one DIY fan said: “Don’t throw away your old trampoline, it can always serve – beautiful space for this summer”.
All you need is some old curtains and fairy lights to attach to the top railing, and cushions and throws to make a stylish den.
It’s the perfect space for a kids’ sleepover – or seating area for Mum and Dad to have a glass of wine on a warm evening.
One clever chap even turned the trampoline upside down, then attached fairy lights to the ‘roof’, so his girls could dance underneath it.

Tagging their friends and partners in the post, they said: “project for u”, “if you get bored in the lockdown” and “look what you could make”.
One mum described it as the “best den ever”, while another said “what a great idea”.
