Play Structures

So if you saw the June 2007 WeaveCast post, you know that I was tasked with building a children’s play structure in two days for my son’s fourth birthday party (which was yesterday.) How, you ask, did it go?


My secret weapon was one of these.

These are brilliant for power outages and *ahem* late-night construction projects.

So the day of the party, ninteen kids descended upon our humble abode. I imagined them swarming around the playset and having a grand old time.

The kids?


Were fascinated by the scrap ends of lumber left over from construction.

They stacked them into cities, weaved mazes, built levers and fashioned them into make-shift catapults.

The take-away message? No matter how wonderful the toy, it can never compare to the play possibilities of the box.

Please share your thoughts: I enjoy your comments and feedback!
