Two Tremendous Little Tikes Makeovers

My Great Outdoors

Family: Jeff, Jen, Joshua & Justin (19 months)
Location: Crystal Lake, IL

We scoured Craigslist and garage sale listings to find second-hand outdoor toys for our twin boys who are 19-months-old. We lucked out and got a playhouse and an infamous Cozy Coupe car from a neighbor down the street.

We scoured Craigslist and garage sale listings to find second-hand outdoor toys for our twin boys who are 19-months-old. We lucked out and got a playhouse and an infamous Cozy Coupe car from a neighbor down the street. They were very well-loved, worn and faded. A little elbow grease, some spray paint for plastic and creative shopping online yielded some very fun results. Our kids now have a fort and arguably the coolest car in town. Plus we saved two large plastic toys from a destiny in a landfill and gave them new life. Now our yard is a fun place for our kids and they really love their "new" toys.

Thanks Jen & Jeff! What a fun re-fresh you did on these! Readers, catch up with this family at Go Team Wood.
