But aside from the play set I want to add a lot of other elements to our backyard. Unique and creative items that will help the kids stretch their imagination to new heights. Therefore, I am doing a lot of research looking for "fun backyard" ideas. I thought I'd share some of my favorite find with you!
I am loving this post on "How to Create an Irresistible Outdoor Playspace for Children" by Jenny at Let the Children Play. I am loving the idea of "loose parts play". The idea is to take a variety of items (natural or not) to give the kids a way to explore and be creative and independent. Jenny explains the theory perfectly in this post.
