EDITED: LAWDY! I can’t tell you how much revamping our outdoor space has had since this post! No time for pictures today, but I wanted to say we kept the big equipment (swingset, play house, balance beam, climbing wall, trampoline, sand box), some medium equipment (wheelbarrows, balance bikes, the horrible red/yellow cars, hoops), and some smaller things (a couple balls, racquets, chalk, two bowls, two pourers, a few shovels, hammers).
The black shelf and most of its contents are gone. There was too much stuff and the girls were still doing Scatter Play rather than focusing on something and becoming engaged with it.
Possible pictures to follow, but I am pretty busy these days! 😉
Nothing better than having blessings to create a space for. (Not even my former beautiful garden!)
Most things were purchased used, built from scraps, or given as gifts. New items were mostly purchased from a dollar shop. We could certainly do without all of these things and make great use of local area parks and playgrounds. My goal was to support independence, movement, creativity, and interacting with God’s creation.
Here’s a glance at our outdoor play. We hope you are inspired!
