Blocks for the Sandpit

If you read my blog regularly you will know that we just got a new nature based playground at our school and we are all enjoying playing outside no matter what the weather is like. I am trying to incorporate as many natural products for the children to explore, investigate and play with in our new playground. I picked up some wood from the local school recycling shop and thought I would make some blocks for the children to use in the outdoor area. The children played with these in the sandpit and they promoted a lot of imaginative play.

As we were talking about farms I thought I would continue the theme outside. 

The farmhouse door (or castle door, or house door, or stable door...)

Another project that I am contemplating making to sell - the story of my life!
I'd love some feedback.


  1. oh I love them...what a fantastic idea! I would certainly buy some for our sandpit and natural playspaces!

  2. LOVE these! Did you draw them right on or use stamps? You should definitely make these to sell. :)

  3. I think these turned out super cute! I bet you could come up with all sorts of sets too! Thanks for sharing at Mom's Library!

  4. Great idea! I love those blocks. Great for creative play!

  5. Those are wonderful blocks. Thanks for sharing on Artsy Play Wednesday. I pinned it! : 0 ) Theresa (Capri + 3)
