Backyard Play Structure

Our kid climbs. Everything. So Nate made her a structure. To climb. Oh, and she's obsessed with monkey bars. So he gave her some monkey bars, too.



Disclaimer: We are in no way suggesting that you build something like this for your child. We built it based on our child's interests and abilities. The rope swing is only available to her when we have a direct view to the structure, otherwise it is tied up out of her reach. There have been many splinters, yet not one tear. Please keep safety in mind and use common sense if you decide to DIY anything for a child.

  1. I love it! And don't worry, I won't sue if I copy your idea and my kid gets a boo-boo.

    1. I've definitely been up on the platform! It's a cool perspective of the yard.

    1. I did, too. Mine was a rusted metal contraption that tipped if I was swinging too high. Safety first - ha!

    1. We hope it lasts a couple of seasons. We are undecided on whether to "finish" it to give it extra life.

    1. She's been having lots of fun on it. She even used some mud to "paint" it :)

  6. What a cool play structure! My kids' dad built one for them when they were young, and they played on it for years. A great investment.
