OUT with velcro; IN with grommets

Just a little update on the New Kids' Court:

Grommets were my initial thought, until I decided velcro was easier and more economical. Grommets are definitely the solution; grommets and zip ties.

I also ordered interlocking foam tiles like these from They cover the concrete patio perfectly and are working out great for a safe, soft, durable, play space.
