We have a 12X8 dog kennel that I made a playground for DS2 in (Little Tykes Fort and Swing, sandbox) We don't have a fenced yard and if I have the baby outside he runs for the road because he thinks it's funny somehow. So now I get to knit while he plays and not worry about him getting into trouble.<br><br><a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v295/octoberdevil/babyprison.jpg" target="_blank">http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v2...babyprison.jpg</a>

While it may look odd, it's not really much different than a playroom, except that it's outdoors.<br><br>
I am, however, picturing monkeys in their cages, halfway up the fencing, swinging. Please stop if it gets to that point. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I actually think it's a great concept! Assuming that he isn't dragging his tin cup along the chainlinks... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I think it's a great idea! Plus, you can give your DS some crepe paper and let him weave it in the fence and decorate it! Or hang paper on the fence with clothes pins and let him paint..or fill spray bottles with water and liquid water color paint or food coloring and let him spray the paper. There are lots of things you can do with a fence, so then it's a fun thing and not a confining thing.

That's a fab idea. I mean, you're keeping your kid safe.... What's the harm in that? ... it's not like it's a playpen or something....

I think that's a great solution to not having a fenced yard.
