Andreas, a kindergarten kid, had the brilliant idea to create a springboard using loose parts, particularly old tires arranged in a pile and a pallet, serving as a ladder).

First step was to collect all the items needed for his idea. Second one was setting up his construction and testing, while the final step was…. the actual game!

In a few minutes, all pre-K and kindergarten class formed a long queue in order to jump off this makeshift springboard!

Its one more time I see waste material (items with no practical use from an adult’s point of view) to become the center of children’s outdoor play. Kids only add imagination and ingenuity- so easy for them!
