Rålis park – Probably the most creative playground in the world!

Yesterday we went to my favourite play park. Yes, mine. I love it because wherever you look there’s something colourful and fun – and best of all, it’s mostly homemade!
Here are just a few of the things that inspired me….

A ‘scary forest’ – this was a favourite for Ted….just a little bit “‘cary”!

Cars and trucks made from planks of wood to climb on (there were many more and I really should have taken more photos..)…..

And yes, that was just SOME of the stuff there! What a fabulously creative and inspiring place it is!
So now, because Ted just can’t seem to get enough of diggers and his favourite mechanic character ‘Mulle Meck’, R and I are thinking about building a ‘mechanic’s workshop’ outside for Ted over the summer! 😉
