Great post Juliet. I agree guttering is one of the best loose parts you can have for play ... outside and in!
Donna :) :)
BTW. You really should try vegemite on your toast ... beats marmite hands down ... heheheheh!! :)

It makes great book shelves indoors too! What a diverse and inexpensive material :).

This is awesome. I would love to play with that outside so I can't imagine a kid out there that wouldn't think this was fabulous!

Juliet Robertson said...

I will definitely eat Vegemite when I visit Australia. Somehow it doesn't taste so nice outwith its home country! LOL!

Bookshelves? Brilliant Amy! Thanks for this suggestion. Actually I rather like the idea of them being used as little outdoor bookshelves...!

Abbie - your local DIY store will have guttering. Even just a couple of pieces are worth buying.

I ended up buying more guttering this week. I'm now a proud owner of grey AND black guttering and even bought some extra funky attachments.

I agree Juliet - guttering is good!

Juliet-

We have a section of our fence that is going to be filled with a couple of rows of the guttering for our outdoor bookshelves. As soon as the snow disappears we have big plans for continued changes to our outdoor space! Thanks for continuing to provide inspiration and ideas! (I gave you a shout out on Sunday) I posted a link up for outdoor classroom inspiration which I quickly moved to a page instead of a post. It has a linky if you care to pop on by and/or link up any posts!

Thanks!

Those are fantastic ideas. The kids look like they are enjoying themselves!

Thanks for the suggestion Jane - I've been quite lax about link ups lately!

Hi Juliet, just wanted to let you know that the Outdoor Play Party linky will be back up and running again starting tomorrow (Friday). Would love for you to come back and share more of your wonderful outdoor play experiences with us!
