We had some wonderful volunteers come to my school this week to build a structure on our playground. It is an open-ended house/castle/pirate ship hull/treehouse that the children just love.
What I love is that they bought all the materials and got it done!! We just have to pay for materials and love them forever. Done and done.
Comment suggestion: Where was a place you liked to play outside when you were a kid? Me? The tree out back of the church – it had two different good-to-sit-on-limbs to choose from!
