Tips for your Outdoor Spaces
In addition to climbers and swing sets- you can also incorporate many of the Learning Spaces you have inside your home, in your Outdoor Space as well.
A playhouse can be furnished with an outdoor friendly kitchen, dolls, and play food. An open ended playhouse can become a Store, Movie Theater, Restaurant, or Post Office (Just provide a prop box).
Even if you don't have a playhouse, a Mud Pie kitchen can provide hours of entertainment. Some items to add to this space include: watering cans, Pie tins, and kitchen utensils.
You can inspire Children to perform by creating a back yard theater. Provide a box of Props and Costumes, or a box of instruments for an impromptu backyard concert.
