PVC pipe and fittings are an inexpensive medium for kids to create on a grand scale outdoors.  Provide a variety of pipe lengths, and fittings to join the pieces.  Let the ladders and forts and free form sculptures begin!

 

What you will need:images

1/2” or 1” PVC pipe at least 50 feet)

wire saw (available at hardware stores)

lots of pipe fittings: include 4-way, 3-way, T, and angled

 

Allow your child to saw the pipe into any length she desires with the wire saw.  Have her add the fittings, more pieces, and more fittings– in any direction.  If the structures are made outdoors for more fun, add a hose and watch where the water goes!
