Natural Materials

Thanks to all of the people who offered to help with our playground project. I've compiled a few lists of materials needed to start this project. Some need to be purchased, but others can be made or found. Some of these objects seem a bit odd for a playground, so check the pictures in one of my previous posts for clarification. If you feel you could contribute by making or finding any of these materials, please contact me.

Materials to be Found or Made

  • Stumps for stepping

  • Boulders
  • Twine branches for entrance way
  • River rocks for "riverbed" and/or labyrinth
  • Fill (for body of slide)
  • birdhouses and birdfeeders
  • Garden benches (for the handyman/woman)

Materials to be Purchased

  • A-frame swing
  • hammock
  • Maple trees
  • 6 x 6 posts for sandbox
  • slide
  • bridge
  • children's picnic benches

I'm sure we'll think of many more items that we need, but that should get us going for now!
