Why would you buy a prefab climbing wall and/or jungle gym for your little “billy goats” when it’s so easy to make one – or both – yourself?
Check out these great DIY climbing space ideas that can be pulled together in a snap.:
1. Small space climbing wall
Don’t have a lot of space? This climbing wall makes good use of a structure you already have such as the wall of a garage.
Using pressure treated plywood, lumber, climbing holds (available for a wide range of prices) screws, and paint you can create something that is completely unique.
Here’s the tutorial for this wall.
2. Free standing climbing wall
Don’t have a structure to hang your climbing wall on? Create one of your own. Here’s a full tutorial from the Family Handyman website.
3. Sandbox climbing wall
These homeowners made good use of an exterior wall of their home to create a climbing wall. Not only is this fun for the kids, it’s very cheap for the family as it only required installation of the climbing holds.
4. Indoor climbing wall
Whether you don’t have the outdoor space for a climbing wall or want something the kids can use on rainy days, here’s an idea for an indoor climbing wall that can keep the kids entertained for hours.
5. Dream playhouse
