Get Outside

There’s a whole section for outdoor projects, like this Tree Swing for Two that is just begging to be installed in our big backyard tree. Perfect summer project!

Tree Swing for Two

This flower box project, rated “Easy”, was built by a dad with his two boys aged 5 and 2, with materials costing about $5.

Spirit of Recycling

I like the spirit of recycling and low-cost fun you can have using things around the house, like these low-tech shakers and maracas that even the littlest ones can help make, and shake.
