I am new to your blog and LOVE your ideas. They are mostly easy, fun and inexpensive. As a landscape designer I think folks often get caught up in a complex and expensive play area. You prove that a little creativity may be all we need.

Thanks,

Thanks Michelle

I mostly work in schools that do not have an ideal playscape. So we make do with what we've got. My personal theory is that if a teacher goes outside lots and uses the space there, then he or she has a much better idea about what is needed outside in terms of play and learning.

Best wishes
Juliet

I am having trouble with my tape orders- I keep getting colored masking tape that isn't very sticky! It is very frustrating for the children. I have tried several school supply websites, after not having luck with my old standby discount. Is anyone else having this problem?

I tend to buy masking tape from either DIY stores or the supermarket. These tend to supply at a better price offer discounts and have stickier tape. I know what you mean - the quality can vary widely.

Love this story! I have made masking tape available for children in the play and they just LOVE it. So nice to hear/read an account of its uses in play. And with the same enthusiam I had when watching the children make use of its simplicity to create complex play scenes :)

What a fun game the children came up with Juliet! It reminds me so much of the Tom Hunter song, "Build It Up And Knock It Down."

We haven't as much masking tape play this year. I'll let this be a prompt!

Love it Juliet - guess what we'll be doing next week with all the 'old' tape that has stopped being so good for actually making things :)re
