Recycling the play equipment

As your kids grow you find that they outgrow some of their toys as well.  Not only the small, inside toys that they play with but the bigger equipment outside as well.
Our swing set has evolved over the years.  It began as it's supposed a swing set with a slide.  There were many calls for "mummy push"  as they grew and many hours have been spent swinging, sliding and climbing over the whole thing.
Then the swings started to fall apart and eventually had to come off.  The set was then used more like a monkey bar as the kids tested their strength climbing along it.
Ropes have been tied up and flying foxes have been made until lately the swing set has gone into the next stage of its evolution.
My kids and my nephews are all enjoying the tyre swings right now and as the weather has been gorgeous lately, it's helping keep them out of my hair for awhile.
It's also a compromise as next door have one hanging from a tall tree which is much better than ours of course.  When the kidlettes are confined to our yard though, they're happy enough with their very own tyres.
