Nothing is so simple that it can't be screwed up

I had this idea for imaginative play areas in our yard for the kids to play in.  But also that fit in with the landscaping and were fun!  So, I bought some pressure treated plywood and some paints, ordered a playground steering wheel, and bought a switch at the home store.  With a little help from my husband and his jig saw, I created this VW bug in our garden for the kids to play with!
Front - screwed into our trees.  It doesn't look level in this pic, but it is.

Back(inside the car) - working steering wheel and switches.  Again, it is actually level.

Thanks for looking!  All questions and comments welcome!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.
