There is a world of difference between farm and city kids - or maybe not so much. The main thing is that farm kids can be told to play outside and not come back 'til meal times. City kids have security issues. When it comes to entertaining themselves in the garden though, we saw 7 little girls on our nephew's farm, (a mixture of farm and city children) building themselves this tent in the school holidays. Much giggling emerged at times, but it kept them quiet for most of the day. No boys or small children allowed, of course. Dogs sometimes gained admittance, although they must have been very squashed. The grass here is totally brown in winter but recovers to a lush green in the summer months.
