Backyard Ball Run.
Red’s grandpa made him this awesome ball run for the backyard. He got the inspiration from the Lowe’s Creative Ideas Spring 2012 magazine.
He spray painted various pieces of plastic guttering and mounting brackets with plastic spray paint, and then mounted them all to the fence like a marble run.
Here are the different items he got to drop in. There are steel fishing sinkers, fishing bobbers that make a rattle sound, gemstones (like in floral vases), and Squinkies. Red will probably make use of the landscaping rocks too. :)
He also got some different scoops, a funnel, squirt bottle, and bucket to dump water down the gutters as well.
And he used a big storage tub to keep it all handy for when Red visits. I see many hours spent here this summer. Thanks Pop Pop and Nana!
