Family Easter Fun – Tree and Log Balancing

Over the Easter weekend the children and I found some felled trees on the edge of a wood, which made a fantastic “natural” playground for the children to climb, crawl and jump on. Before too long I was up and balancing on the logs with them. We played a game of making our way along without touching the ground, only using the tree trunks and branches. The children were entertained for almost 2 hours! They usually get bored in a playground fairly quickly. They reported back that they liked the “way they are all different”, the “challenge”, and especially when some of the smaller cut trees moved they loved the added “danger and excitement!” So what are you waiting for? Go find some fallen trees to balance on…but, please don’t cut any down though 🙂 If you are in town then garden walls make a good challenge…enjoy!
