i want this (all images from progressive early childhood….i wish i could visit in real life!):
i also want a huge pvc pipe for the kids to roll around in. and huge boulders for the kids to climb on. and a little stream running through the playground.
i am so grateful for what we have. safe equipment, lots of green space, sidewalks for rainy days, big trees…
and for the new rock that will protect while jumping and be loaded in dump trucks.
but seriously, if you are close enough to drop some of this other stuff (logs, tree trunks, slices of tree trunks, tractor tires, an old wooden boat, pvc pipes, a concrete tube…)off on our playground, please do.
thanks for the inspiration and the reminders of what we have.
our playground is complete enough to meet state standards! but the grass will wear down quickly so we are having ground cover installed (after some farm work is complete and the farm trucks are free). there are clusters of church friends who have energy and ideas to make this happen. i am so grateful.
these play structures are not meant to be moved and reinstalled.
it was a lot of work.
but many smiles have been had already.
here we are thanking mr. kevin in person. : )
we’re eager to enjoy hanging out in the space all year long.
for “exercise week” we had an indoor obstacle course set up.
i am glad to announce there were no injuries!

i want to remember to do this during the winter months when extended outside time is limited.
i decided to use a piece of cardboard and left over orange paper to make a BIG version of our collage carrots (in case that maybe real-maybe not real easter bunny is really hungry).
again, we pretended there were no scissors. again, we used up all the glue we had (for real).
and i should not be surprised that my TTH class thought to dig through the shelves to find orange/green ribbon and lace. i love that!
it wasn’t dry when we left school for easter break, so i am excited to see it finished and shiny from all the glue.
we cut plastic binder dividers into strips, then snipped more, then pressed them on a piece of laminate, then added another piece of laminate on top.
when the pieces of colored plastic would overlap, we would see color blending. beautiful.
