My boys are incredibly creative when they are outside. They seem to go with themes, sticking with them for a month or two then they move on to something else. ( uHmmm… Might be interesting to think about as we school our boys.)
We have gone through swinging, soccer, bugs, tree climbing, treasure hunting, obstacle course making and probably a few other I am forgetting.
Here’s one of their most adventurous creations.
Right now they will look at something and immediately see “hideout”! I am letting them go with it. So far nothing has been destroyed, demolished or hurt in the process of their outside fort making.
Here are four new hideouts they have discovered in the last month:
Under the front stairs.
Underneath the juniper beside the pool deck.
They spent hours pruning the juniper so that they could all fit underneath.
This is their latest hideout and I was the ‘bad guy’!
Lets just say they were pretty easy to catch.
