    You can always go for the "make it yourself" method if you can't buy it.

    I will be doing that as much as I can! I'll be working just 3 days a week by the end of next year for the next five years or so. So I think I can find time to make stuff

    How about some kind of a walking labyrinth, kids' style? You could use it as well, if you are into meditation.
    baah.

    I would put a digging pit in first...it will probably get the most use for the longest, unless he doesn't like to get dirty. Same with a sprinkler.
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    I listened to a whole podcast about Labrynths! I had always thought of a labrynth as a puzzle to be solved like in the movie. The podcast explained that the walking labrynths are garden maze-like walks where you will always get to the centre. I think they look really nice in big open spaces.

    A sandpit is on the cards for sure. He doesn't mind getting dirty ^.^ He uses little rocks to dig in the garden. I will have to get him a little shovel.

    Water play is a high priority for us this summer. We won't have air-conditioning and I'll be 5 months pregnant by then. I think we'll be spending a few of the hotter days at the in-law's house.
