LOVE the new avi pic Kimberly. Sooo cute.
Ya know that wheelbarrow would make a very cool planter when your son outgrows it. LOL
Good idea on that cheap, almost instant playground illusive.
Here is a site that has a couple playgym idea http://www.littlefeatheredbuddies.org/creative/creativecenter.html
Just to give an idea af what you could do. You wouldn't have to use bamboo like they do..wooden dowels would be perfect, and you can get them at walmart very cheap. You can also get untreated hemp string there in the craft dept. Lots of stuff in craft dept really. Just be sure things like wooden what have yous are not treated/painted.
Someone here not long ago made a very cool playstand using pvc pipe. It was very inexpensive too. I think it was Connor G? if you want to do a search.
I made a playstand out of a wooden clothes drying rack that my guys love. Here's a pic to give idea
The tray is just one of those cafeteria type trays I had on hand..and I also added a piece of an old birdcage. They love hopping from rung to rung, and you can hang all sorts of things from it.
Someone that used to be on here said she couldn't find one that wasn't painted, but mine is unfinished. I guess if painted you could always sand it down if u had the time and patience.
You could even use an unfinished piece of plywood for a base and drill holes for dowels or keet safe branches. I sometimes use Elmers glue to make things. It's safe but if concerned you can sand whatever glue might be exposed after it is dry..say you put elmers in a hole to secure a dowel and some oozes out? Sand around it after it's dry?
