Recently the children have been working with Dad on a design technology project to make playgrounds. They went to several local playgrounds to evaluate the structures there and collect information about materials and construction techniques. Back home they used lots of different materials to make their own playground designs. Balsa wood, straws, lolly sticks, match sticks, toy tyres, pebbles, leather, foil and plastic were attached together with string or a low-melt glue gun. They both even included a parent's bench for the mums and dads to sit on.
