    2. Pinterest should come with a warning ;) I've been pinning things for nearly 18 months and I love how you can access your boards away from home when you're trying to share an idea or look up something

    3. Pinterest should really come with a warning ;) But I like that you can access your boards even when not at home which has proved useful when trying to share an idea you've seen

  7. Fantastic list :D
    I'm an Early Years teacher (& pinaholic) too.
    I've ended up with so many pins I had to start splitting my boards up (so I could find things!), but my main outdoors board is:

    Happy pinning!

  10. Oh, pintrest . . . I had so many early childhood pins I ended up starting a Pintrest account just for them, so I could organise them instead of just having one or two boards on my personal account :). I may be a little OCD when it comes to organisation haha.
    My outdoor board is http://pinterest.com/barefootplay/the-great-outdoors/

  15. Hello Jenny! I have a really excellent board, which should probably be two, because it is a mix of playgrounds from around the world and backyard play ideas.

    Enjoy! http://pinterest.com/23angelas/playscapes-outdoor-play-environments/

    Thanks for all you do!
