We went to our electrical company and saved as many spools from the fire as we could. We chose 3 different sizes for our playground. The first thing we did was decide how to keep them from rolling about, as much as the kids loved that. My initial idea was burying them a bit but Husband was much smarter and suggested cutting them. So cut them we did.
The kids enjoyed painting, for a few minutes at least.
Hubby did a great job putting the steering wheel on.
The results are great!
