Backyard Toys

At the beginning of summer I bought five logs from our local farmer's market. I thought they would become a table and chairs to accompany the mud pie kitchen, but they have become much more than just furniture. The other day my husband brought home a couple of "balance beams" to add to the collection. Oh what fun!


  1. These are the very things that at a state school if a child can not read, they get them to do things like balancing, walking backwards,etc. This helps coordinate the brain, so well done you. Ball catching and throwing and swinging on a swing are important for brain thinking. My son who is now 30, spent hours swinging, and is now as brainy as. cheers Marie

  2. We have a few stump chairs in our yard...never though to do something like this with them! Great idea!!
