DIY Magical Playground

Children frequently have their imagination caps cranked on high. My boys are no exception. My little monkeys gave me the idea to use random pieces of junk to create a magical playground. I was pulling some crib parts from the early 90s out of our shed, when my eldest propped a piece against the fence and started climbing. Frightful, I started to remove the ladder. Then the proverbial light bulb went off:} I placed it against our small tree and said "climb away!"

I also had a few miscellaneous pieces of particle board lying around. We took the particle board and painted it:) Going up anyone?:} Bright colors, fun to stomp on, and a ramp for the monster trucks! A pretty awesome job for a days work at play. Junk is FREE and it led to an active, fun, care-free adventure! Play spontaneously with your imagination caps charged up and ready to go!
