THE GREAT OUTDOORS As a fun and healthy way to keep children entertained, a playhouse is a worthy investment. Bunnings national landscape buyer Trent Emmins shares his top tips for encouraging safe, active play outdoors. Set up play equipment or playhouse in an area that can be seen from a range of viewpoints. This helps parents keep a keen eye on children as they play. Build play equipment on soft ground such as sand to avoid injuries from accidental falls. Playground equipment and a playhouse can be entertaining for kids of all ages. Playhouses come in a great variety. Set up a stereo outside so children can listen to their favourite music. When buying ready-made playhouses, always check the requirements of play sets, as different ones can be better suited to different spaces. Playgrounds cover a variety of spaces, so ensure the size of your chosen play set matches that of the backyard. Bunnings holds various DIY workshops. Details: bunnings.com.au Seen any great ideas?

BUILD A KID'S DREAM HOME CHOICES ARE ENDLESS Janita Singh CHILD'S PLAY Children's playhouses can be modelled on real homes. CREATE lasting childhood mem- ories with modern playhouses. Today's playhouses are great to look at and even better to play in. And one in the backyard means fun in a safe environment for children. Bunnings has just brought in a great range to accommodate all needs and moods. Many come with extras such as climbing frames and slides and today's designs make playhouses look more like miniature houses. The great range available means it's possible to build playhouses similar in design to your own home. Generally, a wooden playhouse is easier to maintain and paint in any colour. Do your homework first if you prefer to build your child a play- house from scratch. Have a plan, work out a budget and do as much research as poss- ible. Work out the size and scale, what your child wants, material to be used, colours and any extras including slides, steps or a second storey. Having actual doors and windows will add to the design. Keep in mind safety aspects and use materials which are child- friendly. Extras such as adding artwork and motifs will create more visual appeal. Children can even display their prized artworks. Playhouses with enough space can feature storage room for toys and other knick-knacks. A study area and a space for relaxed reading are also valuable spaces to add to modern play- houses.
