    I would like to set up a series of posts/points around our school site which resources for a trail could be attached to. I was thinking of wooden fence post type things with bull dog clips on them so that sturdy wallets with items for children to collect could be attached. I was also wondering if bull dog type clips could be attached (drilled) to walls/fences around school too. However...
    1) how do you find child friendly bull dog clips? Are they such a good idea in areas where the children will also play - what else could I use? - health and safety?!
    2) how would it be best to put in fence type posts on grass?

    I need to provide costings for this and am trying to work out if it is feasible - any thoughts or ideas very welcome, or even photos if you have done something like this.

    Will they be used often enough to make it worth it?
    Will everyone use them regularly?

    If not, then just laminating what you need at the time and using elephant tape or similar will be enough. (It's what we do for the two or three times a year anyone does such a thing anyway.)

    Use postcrete to fix into ground or those metal spikes all available at diy centres. I think you could use a simple carabiner which could be attached to the post with a piece of strap like webbing.
