Outdoor Blocks for an Outdoor Setting!


Natural Blocks are the current rage right now. What better place to drop them then in your outdoor setting.


When our neighbor next door cut down a birch tree right beside us, the opportunity to have natural blocks fell right into our laps.


Once you have your logs, you might use a miter saw for easy cutting.


For larger logs, you can begin by using the miter saw sawing through as much as you are able. Follow up with a hand saw to take the cut through the rest of the way.


Choose lots of different sized logs.


To create lots of different sized blocks. Keep some blocks or logs large to develop those growing little muscles.


Finally, place them in an outdoor setting for FUN outdoor play.
