For my girl scout gold award project I planned to restore two jungle gyms that were built at a ball field close to my community. These jungle gyms were previously built by my two cousins and my sister. The jungle gyms were vandalized over the past summer and were in desperate need of repair.
These jungle gyms were first built in 1997 and 2000. i assembled and hung ten new swings, including a baby swing. I replaced two cracked and broken slides, replaced the play accessories, which included two telescopes, one steering wheel, and handles for the kids to climb onto the jungle gym.
One of the jungle gyms had a climbing wall attached to it that I restored. I also built a new addition to the other jungle gym which was a set of monkey bars. I built two roofs on top of one jungle gym allowing shade for the kids if they wanted it.
I learned alot from this project. Some of the things I learned was to have patience with my parents, who helped me with my project. I utilized measurement and math skills to figure out how uch wood i would need to rebuild the jungle gyms. I learned carpentry skills from my dad. Utilized time management skills to coordinate and organize, and complete the repairs to the jungle gym.
