Im in the process of making big wooden building blocks from old ply wood for outside

also have recently introduced:

weaving frames
a great big branch in a pot for hanging/ decorating
a box of natural items (seashells/sticks/pinecones etc) for creative play

I want DH to source me a log for out there too :D

also have ride one/sand pit/ wendy house etc but am trying to introduce less plastic and more natural stuff

windchimes, hula hoops, kiddi sized garden tools and a good patch of mud or a pot/tray they can dig in.

Magnifying glasses and bug pots and binoculars for bug catching and plane/bird watching

Def. an outside easel/chalboard and some chalks for drawing on floor or the easel (or outside painting) and paintbrushes for waterpainting (or used the broken chalks to crush and make outdoor paint).
