Our weekend project

This is 95% complete. We just need to add the picnic table portion under the slide area.

The tower has 3 levels and the kidlets love it. Sunshine especially loves the "bumpy slide". We are going to put their sandbox just to the left of it to make it "Play Central".

It was 2 days of solid work but it went pretty well overall. It came as a Highlander kit from Sams Club (it was drop shipped for free directly to our house) and though not one of the biggest sets available, it is plenty for our 2 tykes. We know that it will get years and years of use.

I want to add some bright and colorful flags that I'm going to make myself. I just need to find some great vinyl to do that with. Any suggestions as to where to look? If you have other ideas on how to dress it up and make it over the top cool, just let me know.

Do you think I should count this on my Crafting by the Numbers monthly tally? I'm thinking so. I DID create something.

2 of you added your own colorful comments:

We have a similar one we picked up from BJ's and believe me, they will wear it out! We put ours in when my oldest was 2 and she is now 10. Congrats on the big project (and I remember, it was a big project!).

Wow - super project indeed! Vinyl - maybe Joann's has it by the roll - for picnic table covers - just zig-zag two pieces together - or some flannel backed table clothes (dollar store).
