Toddler Step

Though I've built a lot of kids' furniture now, I think this is my son's favorite item. He requests it constantly. I built two more for friends and even a tiny play one for his toy house.
This was my first attempt with a jig saw, and my biggest advice is to be sure the trigger is pressed all the way in and to go very very slowly. Also, when you are cutting the straight edges on the side, you can clamp a guide on just like with a circular saw. That helped a lot. By the time I made my second and third it was easy.
