Although summer vacation is here, summer isn't!
With the unseasonably cold temperatures & ridiculous amounts of rainfall, our usual summertime activities have fallen by the wayside: no swimming in the river that is our backyard; no bicycle rides to the General Store for a nice cold ice cream to beat the heat; no just being outside.
We are all climbing the walls.
So we got to thinking.
What if we could literally climb the walls?
What could we add to our home to be as active and fun inside as we normally are outside?
We already skateboard & scooter around the house, but we need more.
Check out some of our favorite ideas:
A Climbing Wall - we thought this would be great erected in our rather tall stairwell.
A reading platform reached solely via the climbing wall.
Vertical "monkey bars" to climb & swing on.
An Indoor Slide.
We also decided that since we are 5 people living in a very small farmhouse, we need to create "spaces" wherever we can:
A Loft off the kitchen.
A Secret Nook under the stairs.
Maybe they'll find their way into yours...
