I have two DS's -- 2-1/2 & 5-1/2. They have a play area in the basement where they can do pretty much whatever they want (as long as it doesn't break the posted rules). They are so PHYSICAL -- just want to jump and jump and jump. Toys don't interest them much. Lincoln Logs and legos are most often projectiles rather than building tools. DS #1 treats the i-beam in the basement like monkey bars. DS#2 almost killed himself the other day jumping off a countertop (against the rules, of course!). Any advice on how to address the physical needs of boys? Can't really afford gymnastics classes. Had a trampoline but sold it when I had visions of someone breaking their neck...
