My Kids are Outside Creative Maniacs

We have a deck off the back of our house. The kids have taken it upon themselves to, literally, set up shop under it. There are times when I decide to just not go down and see what they are doing because…..I don’t think I want to know.

But the other day I had a “tour” and it was so much fun! These kids have become Outside Creative Maniacs!


Bookshelves…and if you look carefully, to the left is the stash of homemade bows and arrows.




Sweet Cheeks was hard at work making “food”. It entailed swishing the bucket back and forth and creating a lot of dust!


RB eating his carrot that he really didn’t like. The kids were so dirty, they had dinner out on the deck.


The fire pit. It took some explaining, but finally I convinced RB that lighting a fire in the fire pit would be a bad idea…since it would be under the deck.


I thought this was so cool! They made themselves and arm chair. They can really sit on it!!



Silly, dirty, happy children. What a great day!!

  1. Your kids are adorable and creative! This was the cutest post I have read all night!

    Thank you for stopping by the Thoughtful Spot Weekly Blog Hop this week. We hope to see you drop by our neck of the woods next week!

  2. My kids used to build stick forts out in the woods behind our house. They also used to dam up a small stream of water and made a small pond area where our ducks could swim. I really can’t say what they did lately since they went and grew up!

Thoughts? Please share!
