Plastic greenhouse grade sheeting was placed over the top and secured to the upper frame with strapping. At the base of each side “wall” we rolled the plastic around, and secured it to 8’, 1” x 2” lumber scraps, added hooks and eyes, and voila!…our greenhouses.
The Natural Playscape is not a run of the mill playground. It is a play area constructed using natural materials such as boulders, earth mounds & water features avoiding plastics, metals, concrete, lumber, or signs explaining how to play. Children that roll down hills, scramble up rocks, dam up water, or hide in grass experience natural play. This type of play frees the child’s imagination to limitless learning opportunities.
