We set up a pool noodle obstacle course, with a tunnel, hurdles, a "ring toss" with upright noodles and hula-hoops to toss onto them. The noodles were secured with large nails and garden stakes, and duct tape to hold them together where needed.
Wood pallet sandbox, with bench seats that unfold to cover the sandbox! I hate sandboxes bc it's like an outdoor litter box for wild critters. Love that the cover will keep them out! Hubby is going to hate that I found another pallet project :D
Notice the red barn birdhouse in brightly blooming summer flower garden and how the red is repeated. When the red flowers are finished blooming, the red birdhouse will still draw the eye into the garden. Color and repetition create rhythm in the garden.
