Tree Decks around a new tree that will grow out to make a large shade leafy “roof” over the deck. The neat thing about them, is that they put children essentially "in the tree” so they get to see the tree canopy up close, and to see the different insects that live in the bark above the ground, and the birds that fly into and nest in the canopy.

I like how this puts children essentially "in the tree” so they get to see the tree canopy up close, and to see the different insects that live in the bark above the ground, and the birds that fly into and nest in the canopy.

Develop balance and coordination through play on the outdoor preschool playground. The Adventurous Child’s unique Tri-Level Balance Beam provides children with a level surface, a step up or down, and an inclined plane all within the same preschool balance beam. The ability to step from narrow beam to narrow beam requires a greater skill level than just walking on a standard preschool balance beam. This outdoor balance beam is designed to reach from ground level to 12 inches off the ground.

Balance Beam- Great large motor and balance tool to help preschool age children learn risk-taking in a safe controlled environment.

Every child decorates a stone and then adds a weatherproofing varnish. What an amazingly welcoming display! School counselors - could make it a great lesson on diversity & add stones to our school garden

Happy City Birds: Bird Houses Built Of Trash

Urban-dwelling birds and wildlife are in need of more options for cozy places to live. So artist Thomas Winther, aka Dambo, initiated the Happy City Birds project. He spent just two weeks building 250 birdhouses out of free and recycled materials.
