Homemade Play Equipment
provides teachers, recreation leaders, scout leaders, parents and others who are interested in games with ideas for constructing and using "homemade" equipment. The ideas provide ways to enable each child in a large group to have a piece of equipment and be actively playing. The text describes the construction of inexpensive equipment by recycling "throw away" items such as plastic bottles, coat hangers, nylon stockings, coffee cans, and many other household items. It also focuses on unique and low cost equipment. Sample activities are provided for all equipment described, as seen on Late Night with David Letterman.
