I am totally on a roll with my DIY outdoor munchkin toy challenges and have already successfully created an awesome playhouse and superb sandbox by upcycling wooden bits I had stored in attic.
The kiddo was desperate for a climbing frame so I headed up to the attic to see what my imagination could put together:

Anyone with a munchkin has definitely had their makeup collection raided and also been on the receiving end of an oh-so-artfully applied makeover or two:
