Close to the ground soft furniture like pillows get students into a cozy position not often associated with school. Getting kids to feel comfortable while learning is not a new concept but now many schools are just starting to realize and use this 'new ground', especially for students beyond K-2.
Floor pillows in a school environment can take a beating and literally go flat within a year. Teachers can't afford that, so I started looking for cheap diy solutions using dense foam seat cushions. Try to avoid using cloth pillow cushions as they get dirty very fast! Here now are a several of my very non-traditional floor favorites.
Note - This floor cushions page goes with it's sister page - Wafuu (Japanese Style Low Tables). Here, we adapt a traditional circle round table and take off the adjustable legs.
Stearns Boat Cushions Walmart - $8.94 a piece
Dense Foam is perfect with nylon fabric (easy to clean)
Cut straps off the back
Better Homes Memory Foam Seat Cushion at WalMart - $12.49
Cut straps off the back, also stackable - Make sure you buy a dark color if buying cloth fabric. Cloth fabric should be your last choice, but I understand, it may also be a good buy!
