My backyard typically looks like a play room. It really does. They will bring out webkins, dolls, more toys, blankets, chairs and whatever they can think up. You see, I would want it....well, clean. But I let them do it with ONE rule...PICK EVERYTHING UP AND PUT IT AWAY. And, they'll do it. So, I let them have a the backyard look like a toy room. They get pretty creative.
I mean look at the slide its propped up by a bar stool coming off of the side of the tramp. I mean how white trash can it get but the kids LOVE it and so do the neighbor's. There are times we'll have up to 15 kids over at least 2 or 3 friends per kid.
