Homemade Play Equipment.
Werner, Peter H.; Simmons, Richard A.
This book provides elementary school teachers, physical education specialists, special education teachers, recreation leaders, and parents with some innovative ideas for construction and utilization of homemade playground equipment. Activities which have been found to be interesting to children and adaptable to large classes are suggested. The acquisition, construction, purpose and activities for various pieces of physical education equipment are outlined. The emphasis is on utilizing materials normally thrown away or of very little cost. An appendix lists sources for equipment which may be purchased at little expense and used for playground activities. (JD)
