A couple years ago, PTO money was used to put in 2 gaga ball pits. The kids love them!

Toys for recess at school? Don't the kids bring their own stuff to school for recess? I just have never heard of a school having recess toys before. Lol

Tether ball
Baseball stuff or T-ball
Dodge balls..

Our schools have the tether ball poles. Kids love it! I loved it too back in the 90s.lol

This. My ODS loves Gaga ball.

I agree with the others on gaga. Kids love it! The other big activity is carpet ball. Another favorite and can be an indoor or outdoor thing. 

I would be afraid of a lot of the things you listed like chalk and magnifing glasses. These are not things that will last. I would rather see our pta spend money on things that will be usable for years to come.

Our dad's club built them and put them in when my kids were in elementary. They were REALLY popular.

A volleyball net was built a couple of years back but the gaga pit is still the biggest rave.
