Five months ago we needed to have a tree taken down.  As soon as the wind kicked up, be it rain, shine or snow, we watched from the house with fingers crossed that this tree would hold it’s ground.  With each storm another limb would fall and we soon learned that there was nothing we could do to save it. I always feel a bit of sadness when anything nature created is lost so finding another purpose for made me smile…for days.  We had the trunk cut into 10″ logs and rolled them from the front of the house to the back.  This is what it formed:


Now that Spring is here I could no longer let my son continue to play in what has fondly become known as the “dirt pit”.  So two yards of sand, and an extremely sore body, later this is what he has:


As much as I’d like to take credit for imagining what that tree could be, I simply can’t.  It is 100% inspired by our Waldorf School sand pits and we are grateful to now have one of our own!
