I found an old art easel thrown out by the roadside early one Sunday morning on our way to swimming lesson, skidded to a stop, boot and seat belt released simultaneously, and in a flash it was shoved in around the pram – in all its imperfect beauty!
What do I love about it?
-It fits perfectly at the end of our outdoor space
-It is easily moved to access the storage cupboards
-It doesn’t get in the way of the clothes line
-It can be repositioned anywhere outdoors actually
-The black and whiteboards are in terrible, disintegrating condition – but that’s ok – material or plastic or card could easily be taped on to serve as a canvas, or it could be used as a frame for weaving materials or draping large plant fronds over
-It is such a cute little puppet theatre!
-It houses B’s tipper truck and motorbike so well- like a little automotive garage!
-It is a perfect hiding nook
-With a kid sized chair and a large sarong draped over – it is a fun outdoor quiet spot to read or have a cool drink and a snack!
-It’s quite simply something different, outdoors, to spark imagination and add to the kid friendly play space!
