Games for kids in Schoolyards
These are kinda fun to do, but they are rough on my back and knees. I'm getting a bit old to be crawling around a schoolyard on my hands and knees with a paintbrush.

Again, all freehand and made up as I go along. I like varying the colours as much as possible. The Snakes and Ladders games require a bit of laying out - they need to be square and made up of 100 smaller squares, which is both tedious and time consuming.

Apologies for the quality of the photos. They were mostly taken with my phone, which is NOT state-of-the-art.

Hey Si, this could happen! Just check with the teachers in your daughter's school. If they'll cover my fees, travel, and accommodation, I'll be there next week.

Wish my daughter's playground was as imaginative as the ones here

Thanks Dio. The kids do enjoy it - and it's fun to see them running all over my paintings. Only problem is they wear down the colours over time. Of course, from my point of view, that means more work when I get called back to re-paint the work.
