our forest beneath the trees

have i mentioned that my in-laws have the BEST backyard?!? along the side of the backyard is a row of huge pine trees. we put together a little hideout under there and refer to it as our “forest”. it’s a great place to escape the heat of the sun.

we decorated our forest with some little critters (garden animals) and garland we made using painted pine cones and twine.

i put together a bin to keep under there with all our supplies so that we aren’t always having to cart things in and out. in the bin we have: paint and painting supplies, markers, paper, play dough, wipes, and paper towels.
