Features: Step-by-step photos and instructions to help readers build numerous structures from scratch, as well as detailed tips on how to assemble some of the typical play structure kits available today, including a play set with swings and a pre-fab log cabin playhouse More landscaping advice on kid-friendly gardens and plants, as well as plants to avoid A strong focus on promoting physical activities--from basketball and baseball and soccer to skateboarding and trampolines--by creating fun and adventurous outdoor areas that kids will want to choose over electronic entertainment
