The doors in our caravan close like a guillotine so in order to protect the fingers of our little girl I un-holstered my trusty roll of Duck tape and set to work.
A few minutes later and the door was protected (perhaps not aesthetic improved).
In the following steps I will show you how it was done.

A few things to note:
This guard when made correctly will only help to reduce the risk of fingers being trapped in a door IT WILL NOT ELIMINATE RISK! - parents still need to remain vigilant and ensure that their children understand the dangers of playing with doors.
Duck tape will wreck your paintwork and wallpaper - if you are concerned then you may need to work out a different method of fixing

Step 1: You will need ...

The plastic sheet is the corrugated type of plastic you often find estate agents signs made out of.
If you don't have any (mine was some packaging from some signs I had ordered) then any other rigid but lightweight material will do.
So beautiful. I've bought in brandbagfactory.com bought a bag. You help me look
Great ideea!
