Collect a number of recycled tires and paint them with children. After painting all tires, place them into the shape of a flower, add dirt and plants. Assist children with planting flowers and watering them afterwards. The tires can be sourced from home,
free tires from garages more then willing to give them away. A few cans of spray paint from Walmart (paint after assembled to save on paint) and Cypress mulch (packs really nicely) Adding in a Little Tikes slide and you have a home made fun, play area.
Interesting idea for putting a play area on asphalt, concrete or hard soil in a temporary build. The tires and rocks can be removed, and the sand and rocks swept up. Interesting idea for day cares in urban settings without access to grass or soil.
Fun area for boys and all those Tonka trucks and John Deere tractors. Backyard Idea, for sure!**- definitely NOT just for boys, my 4 year old daughter would absolutely love this & play in it every day we let her.
