DIY climbing wall My hubby did this for our kids in the backyard. I bought the rock wall grips on eBay and the the ply bored is 3/4" that is 4 foot by 8 foot, we purchased from Lowes. We painted it with Restore (for decks) and screwed it into our home. Also when we installed the hand grips we cocked the holes with silicone to keep the wood from rotting out. A pretty simple project that my kiddos and our neighbor kiddos are loving!
This layout is designed with the toddler in mind. It’s not that our little ones need larger holds but rather they need the holds to be closer together so they can reach the holds. Toddlers have plenty of hand strength but where they lack is upper body strength. Therefore, adding more medium sized jugs is the ticket to offer them a positive experience on your wall.
We have a small yard, so utilizing space and making the most of what we have is the goal. Painted checker board and tic tac toe on picnic table. Painted rocks like lady bugs and bumblebees for pieces. Now 2 more games for kids to play outside.
