Juliet, I love this post & don't care if anyone says it's wrong to play with 'good' stuff like this - it looks like so much fun & learning is going on - I may have to go see if I can find one somewhere!! Kierna

Love this! It's like the appeal of a giant cardboard box, but in a different form. These are really fun photos, too. Makes me want to throw a bunch of big old containers in my yard and see what sorts of wonderful things they become!

Thanks for such positive comments - I never thought of the compost bins like big boxes but you are right - they can even be flattened! LOL!

I am always struck at how children explore spaces and objects with their whole body. As adults we have this pre-conceived idea about what a compost bin is and what it is used for. Not so with children as clearly seen in your post!

Love it! Children always know the best way to use real objects!

We got our first compost bin this week after seeing Kierna's link to your post. The children have had great fun exploring, as I write my 11 year old son is rolling himself around the garden in it!

Oh great - it was one of those unexpected discoveries! And so much fun! Thanks for letting me know!
