Love the idea of a trampoline but worried about your children falling off? A brilliant way to avoid any unnecessary scrapes and bruises is by installing a ground level trampoline. Choose a flat piece of land and a trampoline that suits the space, before getting down and dirty with the installation!

A masterpiece wall

Do your children love to paint, draw and sketch? Then why not make a centrepiece out of their work and frame it for all to see. Choose an area that’s home to a large, clear wall and invest in some plain frames (they don’t have to match), before mounting their very own masterpieces.
