Playing Wild Kids
My kid have been playing Wild Kids for several years now. Wild Kids is basically Little House on the Prairre meets Boxcar Children!
Since they liked playing house outside so much, we bought a used plastic play housefrom my sister and fixed it up all cute!
Click here to see how we reused old pieces of furniture for the playhouse.
But do they ever play in it? NO!
Instead they make houses with their neighbor friend. Half the fun is in creating and imagining!
What do kids need to play wild kids?
- Blankets (lots and lots)
- Large pieces of furniture
Examples of things the kids use:
- Small trampoline
- Old metal shelves
- An old tire
- Large sticks/logs
- An unused dog house
- Bricks, wood, stones, old fencing
- Lawn chairs
- Candles (for older kids)
- Old pots and pans
- Child’s picnic table

The kids used to play with this fire pillow all the time… now they are old enough to use the fire pit and have small candles.
Inside their homes.
And this is their clubhouse on the side of the house.
When the weather gets nicer, the kids usually start making wild salads and wild soup!

Beware of these salads, though, they taste mostly of wild onions which you MUST eat with a smile on your face 😳 (ranch helps 😉)!
