Leave plastic animals in a bin outside (near the garden, next to the sandbox, next to a patch of trees, etc) -- when children go outside to play, they can use them and let their imaginations run wild! My recommendation: the children should only play with these toys outside -- that way, they'll look forward to playing outside -- make sure they run around too ;) GG
Yes, we live by the beach but the girls would still love this! Would convert into a seating area with cushions on top when not in use... And this is a fabulous site for contemporary ideas. Wish I lived in London so they could come and sort our garden out!
