A rubbish dump

Every so often our Housing Co-op hires a skip to take stuff to the tip and inevitably there'll be a pile of rubbish waiting to be taken away between skips so we end up with a mini rubbish dump behind the Co-op's meeting room. It looks untidy but the children love it.

  2. Looks like a fun day!!! I just wanted to stop by and say I'm so sorry its taking so long to get your Fertilaid winnings to you. I tried to get my husband to mail it and the pressure of an international ship was more than he was prepared for, LOL. In any event, I will be on its way soon!

  4. It surely is a good break for adults to see things from a child's perpective. It was wonderful observing how the kids kept busy with their brand of fun.

  5. I think I can use those woods to turn into a wooden house for the kids. It's definitely better than my cardboard house that I made for my baby.

  12. We can relate to why kids like that kind of temporary things. They can play and build mock-up structures until one or all gets tired or bored whichever comes first. Very nice post.

  13. Ah yes, it looks like quite the treasure trove for the kiddies! How I remember those days as a child, making do with what we had, and using our imaginations to have so much fun. :)

  16. How fun! I love to see how children see things so differently - this is certainly not a junk heap to them, it's a playground! Happy Outdoor Wednesday! Kathy

  18. I can see it's a very popular place for kids to play. Do you think if I ask nicely that they'll let me play too. :)

  19. I can see that this would be a really fun place to find that perfect 'thing' for that perfect 'job'. My son who is 14 would have a wonderful time figuring out how to use all these wonderful cast offs and make something fun out of them!!

    Thanks for sharing with Make-Do Mondays. See you later and have a wonderful week!!
