What is it with children and trees?
Children and building tree houses? And climbing and running?
Well, I guess we have all ”been there”. At least my own children have, and they would have loved this outdoors exhibition made for playing. Big or small. Old and young. We had a great day!

Looks like a fun place to be a kid! Fun images, Ann-Christine. 😃
Thank you, Jane, and yes, the children enjoyed it just as much as the grown-ups did.
😀 They made me smile – thank you!
Made me smile as well 🙂
The opening picture was astonishing. Took me a while to figure what I was seeing and then just gave up. Reminded me of the living root bridge of Meghalaya for a second. I guess this is the same as ‘children and sticks’? Simply amazing! I can see why there is a queue.
Yes, it is inside the tower of sticks where you could climb to the top! There was a one hour queue – so, if children really want something badly…they CAN wait for it!
And that’s a fine lesson to learn- persistence pays, good things comes to those who wait 😊
Wonderful! Especially for our Inner Child.
Totally agree, Margaret!
Yes – and to be able to take photos of children these days! Not easy.
Quite. Don’t want to be labelled as an Evil Paedophile.
That would be very bad.
Unfortunately, when parents see me taking photos at a playground they automatically assume I’m some kind of freak or child predator. Therefore I’ve stopped taking photos of any children unless they’re related to me or my family.
I am afraid it is like that here as well. No parents around these ones, and the children were quite a distance away – so…I managed. With parents around I sometimes ask them, but I seldom take photos of children as I have had the same experiences as you have. It is very sad, because children make us warm inside, smile more and feel their joy for life. When I traveled far away to distant countries, it was much easier. Both parents and children smile more!
This makes me smile 😃
Good – me too!
Simple joy, its wonderful to see 🙂
Isn’t it? My heart sings!
I do not know about all the other old fogies, but I for one am certainly glad I grew up in the days before video games, and most especially glad that I grew up before the days of electronic devices.
I must agree with you on that. And I am happy that my children were teenagers when the real boom of electronic devices rolled in. They remember what life was before this, and we were very clear about living some weeks now and then – without TV, radio, or any other electronic device. And they still love that, even as grown-ups.
I do seem to remember that my grandparents had a television, though it was rare we had it on.
