Climbing DIY

You can keep the kids busy climbing at home with purpose-made climbing frames or (expert advice reccommended) build your own wall with kid friendly climbing holds.

IMPORTANT! Children climbing at home should be supervised by a responsible adult and when appropriate (for example at height) use proper climbing equipment.
