Toddler friends who live next door can now play in the middle of the castle – after a mother has turned part of the garden fence into a PERSPEX window.
The siblings Arlo and Arabella Devonport, three and two, missed their friend Leo Adlington, three, who lives next door.
Her 27-year-old Amy Vickers had the idea of drilling a hole in her community fence between her gardens in Wakefield, Yorkshire.
And after Leo’s mother Becca agreed, they went to work, and now the three children can safely play together without touching each other.
You can even draw pictures for each other and play zeros and crosses with erasable markers.
Amy, a support representative who lives with her 30-year-old partner Danny, said: “Arlo and Arabella found it difficult not to see anyone during the ban.
“It got to the point where they climbed on the rabbit cage that we have next to the fence so they could look into the neighbor ‘s garden above it, which is clearly dangerous.
“Instead of climbing them up, we decided to make them a small window so that they could stand there and see their friend next door.
“We measured the fence and then ordered a plexiglass plate from eBay, cut it into the fence plate with a circular saw and drilled a few holes in each corner so we could screw in a few screws to hold it in place.
“At least the children can see each other now and chat through the window.
“We also bought wipe board markers so they can now draw pictures on them, and we taught them to play naughts and crosses on them too.
“The kids are at the window all day every day when we are home, so I think they love it!”
